Hi,

I had written a big document file (.odt) containing over a couple of hundred references. I was using bibliography function and storing all the references. The original document was in a seperate partition than the windows partition.
Recently I had to format the windows partition and re-install open-office (2.0.3) too. Now my bibliography database is wiped out. I had not backed up the Application settings for the user account.
When I right click the entries in my document and then click on bibliography entry, all the reference information is there, but how can I get it back in the bibliography database?

Bibus can harvest Bibus references from an OOo document. It may be able to grab OOo references as well. http://bibus-biblio.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Very Happy
Bibus is beautiful. It recovered all the references and now I am using it along with writer for my research papers. Thanks for the help and the link.

I hope Open Office includes something of this kind in the next release.
