OOo Help file wrote:Sections are named blocks of text, including graphics or objects, that you can use in a number of ways:
To prevent text from being edited.
To show or hide text.
To reuse text and graphics from other OpenOffice.org documents.
To insert sections of text that uses a different column layout than the current page style.
A section contains at least one paragraph. When you select a text and create a section, a paragraph break is automatically inserted at the end of the text.
You can insert sections from a text document, or an entire text document as a section into another text document. You can also insert sections from a text document as links in another text document, or in the same document.
To insert a new paragraph immediately before or after a section, click in front or behind the section, and then press Alt+Enter.
For your Base table, try to copy and paste as DDE Link if it's possible.
