I have a database of names and addresses, and I want to convert it to a Writer document that I can reformat.
I can make a report with
It’s easy to create a Writer document, but each record finishes up in its own table. This has a problem: although the fields are in a single column in the report, the table has two columns and it doesn’t seem to be possible to remove the second one.
in addition, I can’t select the entire output and adjust the column widths as one - I have to select each record and do it one at a time. Rather time-consuming.
In the end, what I want to finish up with is a document with (probably) 3 columns. I don’t mind if the records are vertically of horizontally arranged. But I can’t see an easy way of doing this without writing a load of LO Basic.
Has anyone any ideas how to achieve what I want?
