Hi,
I recently downloaded openoffice. I used to use a microsoft access database.
Now i want to add the openoffice databse (.odb) to the SYSTEM DSN tab in ODBC data source administrator. How can i do that (as there is no option to add a .odb database).
Thanks!

I do not think that you can easily add an OOo database using an ODBC driver.

You can certainly use another database product such as

MySQL

or

PostGREs
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostgreSQL

You can use OOo Base as a front end if you desire, and, you can obtain an ODBC driver for access.
