I work on a LabView application which uses MS Access database and connects to it by UDL link file. I would like to switch to OpenOffice and I need to know if there is similar way of creating links to databases in Base. Any other solution for connecting is also welcome.
Thanks.

Connectiong to Base file from outside world not possible in easy way, now.
You can connect through java, using hsqldb connector, but first needs to extract out from odb file into memory, connect to them with hsqldb server, when finished, close server connection, repack all database files back into odb file.

true for the hsqldb-enigine (build-in format of base) but if he uses another database (like mysql, csv, mdb or commadelimited) it's easily possible.
