I want to automatically create a tree structure from tabulated data. I can easely arrange the data any way i want as well as retrieving the relations between the data. But how do i automatically generate a tree structure? Is this the right tool to use? do i have to write a script or is there a built in tool for this? Last but most important, can i find such a script or newbe guides on how to write one, anyware?

I have used a genealogy program that used the graphviz package to actually draw the tree. The graphic output was in EPS or SVG format. The EPS can be included in an OOo document, but not edited. The SVG can be imported into Draw (using a downloadable converter which may not be working at the moment), or edited using other programs.

Graphviz (general-purpose tree/graph generator): http://www.graphviz.org/
Inkscape (SVG-based drawing tool): http://www.inkscape.org/
OOo SVG Import Filter status: http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/SVG_Import_Filter
