The MySQL Connector for installs a native MySQL database driver. It is faster, seamless integrated, easier to administrate and there is no need to install and setup a JDBC or ODBC driver separately. It was never easier to use MySQL databases in Base. Create new database tables or use the powerful SQL query editor of to visually build MySQL database queries without learning SQL commands. Not to forget the database forms, that allow you to display and manipulate data.

You might also want to check out the Oracle Report Builder to create stylish, smart-looking database reports. The flexible report editor can define group and page headers as well as group and page footers and even calculation fields are available to accomplish complex database reports.

Please note that this extension requires an 3.1/StarOffice 9.1/StarSuite 9.1 or newer and a MySQL Server 5.1 or newer.
