I like this extention, but I found out that version 1.1.2 does not work with MySQL.
Version 1.1.1 does work fine...

Our company had the extension installed at all workplaces.
We are very pleased with the reliability and easy to use aspect of the tool.
It makes the Open Office and Linux desktop environment more accesable and proves even more Open Source to be the next generation in business context.

I would recommend it to all Open Office users who need to produce information in combination with addresses from the central address database.

This exention works very good and is really easy in use. I have commercial customers who are using it for months now with a mysql database, and no problems. The sysadmin has to add the database-fields to the template, this is very easy too (drag and drop).

Fantastic! It's one of the better extensions for OpenOffice; it fill an important gap.
