2.0 out of 5 stars Point & Click OpenOffice.org!, January 11, 2006
This review is from: Point & Click OpenOffice.org (Paperback)
First I want to thank the author for publishing this book since written references for OOo 2.0 are few and far between. It provides a good general introduction to select capabilities of OOo.

Beyond the above, I was very disappointed that it didn't provide more "meat." In particular I wanted information on Base, i.e., how to create, maintain, and report information from a database generated exclusively from OOo. The author does give a quick look into the reporting function and some insight into other capabilities. As well, a continuous case example would have been beneficial.

Yet, there is no information as to how to create a database in Base including editing of input data for accuracy. The author starts by directing the reader to get an existing database created from MySQL! I don't use MySQL. I use OOo!

If the buyer wants a "quick start" reference, "Point & Click OpenOffice 2.0" will do the trick. Even at that the price in the $20 range is excessive for 195 pages of generalizations.
