Just installed Oracle Report Builder. I followed the instructions on how to select it to create reports. I use the option "create in design mode" not the wizard. The new report designer does show up and a table selection appears when creating a new report; however I can not for the life of me figure out where the setting is or why there is no menu at the top or options for toolbars. I have tried clicking everywhere, right mouse clicking etc. The only thing I can do is get the properties window to open up.

Now, am I being stupid or just missing something. If I save the report and reopen it with "edit" I still don't see a toolbar or even a menu appear. I have tried minimizing, maximizing, restarting openoffice, restarting my system; you name it.

Any ideas??

Thanks

After starting you OpenOffice Base File ( *.odb ) and Create Report in Design View...

From the Menu: View -> Toolbars

and choose the Toolbars you want.

If you do NOT see any menu, try: Ctrl + v

Thanks Sliderule, will give it a go. I will have to use the ctrl+v because no menu appears at all.

Will report back.

Warning . . . a slight change . . . NOT Ctrl + v ( sorry ) but I should have said: Alt + v

Sliderule:

Thanks again for your help. Did not need it. For some reason this time when I started the program the menus came up.

I did mark the topic solved so moderators would know.

Thanks again.

An additional "bit" of "the secret" is that you must not only shut down your database, but also shut the OO Quickstarter between early it-won't-work travails and the hey!-now-it-works! happy time.
