Is there a way to link data from a database (created in LO Base) to a LO Impress slide, so that each slide can display data sequentially and automatically?
I have a database of 500 records (7 fields per record). I created an Impress presentation with 500 slides to display the 7 fields from each record; one record on each slide. Each Slide is displayed for 5 seconds and then progresses to the next slide. Using forms and controls, having to manually enter the record numbers in the Data Navigator on each slide. But once we save and quit the link is lost. Next time I open the presentation all the slides show only the first record and not in the order it was last saved. For example, Slide 1 was to show Record 1, Slide 2 was to show Record 2, so on and so forth until Slide 500 which had to show Record 500. But when I save and reopen the presentation, all the 500 Slides show only Record 1.
I am not sure if this can be done normally, or should it be done with a Macro. I am a novice in LO Macro Programming. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
From my basic search, I could not find an equivalent question in the forum. However, if such a question has been asked before, I would request if I could be pointed in that direction. And my apologies if this is a repeat question, that has already been solved.
