Connecting OpenOffice.org/NeoOffice to postgresql isn't a problem
using the JDBC drivers (which seems to be the logical choice
given the Java heritage of StarOffice->OpenOffice.org.  I have
been connecting them to postgresql and mysql for year now.

My problem is that OO/NeoOffice charts don't seem to take the
first column of data as the X-Axis, but put everything on the
Y-Axis which doesn't make sense to me.
