Chapter 33. Overview of Database Connect... > OpenOffice.org and Databases

OpenOffice.org and Databases

This chapter is just a small orientation to the whole section of stored data and what to do with it. Because of the disparity in how the stored data can be used, and where we hope you'll expect to find the instructions in this book, we've created this central clearing house sort of chapter to get you started.

In the beginning, Sun bought StarOffice and gave it out or sold it with StarBase, as well as Adabas D a relational database, and provided a means of creating databases, and sadly it was Bad. The interface was confusing, and mere mortals threw up their hands in horror and very sensibly used spreadsheets to store their data instead of databases.
