Open Office Importing Data to Database

How do I transfer a table in Writer to the Open Office database? I can, and have, put the data into the OO spreadsheet; but I cannot bridge the gap to the database.

I can do thie equivalent quite happily in MS Office but I am trying to egt used to Open Office. In both cases , the database seems to be the poor relation.

I am tempted to go back to dBaseIV.

The short version of the table consists of 3 columns - FID, Name, Age. They are all text fields.


THAT problem solved. It is a simple cut and paste from the spreadsheet.

Except I get a message saying I don't have permission to add data to the table in the database!

Some more digging to do.
