2015-08-16 18:52:52 +0100 asked a question Why do I get a "no SDBC driver was found" after upgrade to 5.0 win 64?

I have been using LO for years and have always kept up with the latest version. I recently upgraded to 5.0 and decide to try the 64 bit Windows version. I started up an existing database and tried running a Query via a form and got an error with the following details. What do I need to do to solve this? The database is called "Jobs.odb"
Windows 7, 64bit, English

The connection to the data source "Jobs" could not be established.

SQL Status: HY000

The connection to the external data source could not be established. No SDBC driver was found for the URL 'sdbc:embedded:hsqldb'.

A connection for the following URL was requested "sdbc:embedded:hsqldb".

2013-11-24 03:52:43 +0100 commented answer Is there a way to change the query a report uses in Libreoffice Base or better yet to select the query at the time a report is run?

+1 for really good information. Some I knew but it is great to see it expanded and explained. Some I'm not sure I understand until I play around a little. It seems a little different that what I was asking, in other words I have 2 querries that run fine. I have a report that displays what I want however when I run the report it was set up to use querry A and I prefer that it use query B, Is there a way to force the report to use query B? Or is this a totally invalid question?

2013-11-22 00:52:49 +0100 asked a question Is there a way to change the query a report uses in Libreoffice Base or better yet to select the query at the time a report is run?

I have a standard set of data that I always want out of a report, however it could be based on a query of any of the values. Is it possible to set it up so I double click on a report and it would let me select the query I want to use. Or if not I could set up a template report, copy it and rename it for the most popular queries then change the query attached to that report. I'm open to any suggestions, books, tutorials, or better practices.

2012-07-01 00:34:01 +0100 commented question Default separator for csv files

What do you mean by the term "import". Unless it is a UK Language issue, on my version 3.5.5.2 on Ubuntu whey I right click and "Open with LibreOffice" or from within Calc select File>Open>Filename.csv it always remembers the last choice I made. So in essence the default becomes whatever I use.

2012-06-27 15:24:03 +0100 commented answer How can I insert (or remove) page breaks throughout a document via search and replace?

Sorry, but I'm used to stack exchange sites Is there a way to "accept" this answer? I don't have enough karma to upvote it, or is there something else I should do? The extension worked exactly the way I wanted it to. Fantastic thanks

2012-06-27 13:54:15 +0100 asked a question How can I insert (or remove) page breaks throughout a document via search and replace?

I have a document that will eventually be 100 pages and there is a unique piece of text at the beginning of each page. I would like to search for that text and replace it with a page break followed by the text. I am generating the document via another program so if I needed to place something that could be completely replaced by a page break I could also do that. The real question is how to put page breaks in the search and replace dialog.
