Thanks for the advice.
I probably should have mentioned - I'm also a newbie to LibreOffice!
I get the error when trying to Register my data source. I'm following the LibreOffice writer guide chapter 11, where it says:
For a data source to be directly accessible from within a Writer document, it must first be registered
as described below. You only need to do this once; after that, the data source is available to all
documents in LibreOffice.
So I open the Address Data Source wizard like it says (File →
Wizards → Address Data Source),
but I can't select any of the options without getting that error
I have succeeded in getting my data from the spreadsheet into an odb form now, but when I try to select a data source from within writer (File → New → Labels)
the only database found listed is something called bibliography - mine isn't found (which I guess is because it isn't registered)?
(I'm plainly no expert - but it still seems to me as if LibreOffice is looking for something called evolution that just ain't there)
