“When working with drivers which not fully support the access to the privileges of the database or returning just incorect information, OpenOffice.org only allows the operations which the driver returns. E.g. when the driver doesn’t return the right to insert values into a table even when the database allows it, OpenOffice.org also shows the table in read only mode.”
it’s all in the HOWTO. You might notice that we’re going big on database access recently. This is not an accident, you asked us to.
