To be honest - I am somewhat confused regarding the issue of "where is the
native connector"! It might be that going to extensions and then download/installing
the native connector (for OpenOffice) does the trick. On the other hand, I think
that it should come automatically with the newest versions of LO. The definition
of a natively connected MySQL database goes as follows:
- (1) connect to an existing database, then select "MySQL" from the drop-down
list (JDBC is shown as the first item in that list! MySQL is third from
bottom in my case)
- (2) on the next dialog box select "direct connection" (direkte Verbindung in
- (3) on the next dialog box specify the database name, server name, IP-address
or localhost (127.0.0.1) and port (usually 3306) or else the socket file
(possible in case of a local server)
- (4) then specify the username and whether a password has to be given on
- (5) then store the odb-file.
Hope this is of use to you...
P.S.: It's already getting warmer here again! This usually coincides with
bad weather in Italy which in turn causes warm winds to come across

Just one question: the "native" MySQL-Connector should be included in
3.6.2. I had a lot of trouble in the past with it, but now it seems to be
the best choice of all the possible connectors (Native, ODBC, JDBC).
In any case, reading through your steps - I think that
- the database name should be the name of the database as defined in the
create database statement of MySQL
- did you specify the correct path for the jdbc-connector?

Thanks for info....
So where is the "native" connector file?
Database name IS as specified in MySQL and is as saved - but I added the
path as well (?)
The connector comes up automatically when you "register" it in Base.
