Happy Holidays.
I would like to print labels via the OO wizard using a OO" 2017 addresses" dbase. The wizard provides only one file "Bibliography" to choose from. I cannot find any way to browse throughout my files to be able to select my other dbase files. I have not built the Bibliography file myself and believe it came with OO. :crazy:
Please tell me how to escape this apparent default path.
Thanks very much.

First of all, make sure that your files names end with .dbf but not .DBF.
menu:File>New>Database...
[X] Connect to existing database
Type: dBase
Point to the directory where your dBase is stored. dBase is a database made of dbf files in a directory.
[X] Register your database
Save your database document.
Nothing has been imported, copied, converted. All your data remain in the dBase file(s) exposed by Base to other office documents.
