To be honest - I am somewhat confused regarding the issue of "where is

that it should come automatically with the newest versions of LO. The
of a natively connected MySQL database goes as follows:
- (1) connect to an existing database, then select "MySQL" from the
list (JDBC is shown as the first item in that list! MySQL is
bottom in my case)

Hope this is of use to you...
Thanks again Heinz
But I think we must have different versions of LO. Your 'Step 1' is OK
for the first part, (and it's what I did before), but the second part
here only gives me the options...
o Connect using ODBC
o Connect using JDBC
So knowing the JDBC does not work I tried ODBC but that gives me....
/Could not load the program library libodoc.so.1 or it is corrupted.
The ODBC data source selection is not available./
A search on my Hard Drive for 'libodoc' finds nothing and also
Synaptic does not find it. I than looked under the Extension
Manager in LO and found the 'Native Connector' written by my
friend Alex Thurgood, (who seems to have vanished off eMail at
the moment!!). But I see it is only a Pre-release for Ubuntu and
I'm running PCLinuxOs - so will it work on my machine and if so
do I just download it or what?
