how would I create a spreadsheet from a table in a database?

I know I can copy and paste, and I want to avoid that.  Basically, users
should be able to click an icon in LO (or on their desktop) and be
presented with a spreadsheet which displays an export from a table I have
in a mysql database.  Fields in the spreadsheet must be in a different
order than in the database and be formatted to a pre-defined width.

Hello hw, there was recently conversation on the topic of data export. The
thread is here...

There is no icon or menu selection providing access to that feature
however, yes, the export and reordering of columns can be done. It is done
via the SQL command window. The command, using HSQL syntax, is...
SELECT * INTO TEXT "exportTable1" FROM "Table1"

Syntax would need to be modified to mysql equivalent to support the same
action with a mysql source.
