There are two different methods of viewing a database in LibreOffice.
Choose \<emph\>File - Open\</emph\> to open the database file.
The database file gives you full access to tables, queries, reports, and forms. You can edit the structure of your tables and change the contents of the data records.
Choose \<emph\>View - Data source\</emph\> to view the registered databases.
The data source view can be used to drag-and-drop table fields from registered databases into your documents and to produce mail merges.
