I have spent the day trying to get these guys to work together. I
started off not being able to even access the DM. Here is what I have

1. can load and call DM now ( changed soffice start up script slightly)
2. can select a DSN from a list
3. can select table(s) from a list
4. can browse into StarOffice 'database' and see table icons

I had to make some changes to both the unixODBC DM and the PostgreSQL
driver to get this far.

BUT... I can not open a table (double click the icon) because StarOffice
send SQL that appears to be unsupported by PostgreSQL....

SELECT * FROM "postgres"."tbaddresses"

Any ideas on how to get past this?

I have attached the SQL.LOG if you want more info.

BTW: I have been told that the MySQL driver works fine with StarOffice
but I have yet to try it.
