Found one.

http://documentation.openoffice.org/tutorials/

The ones by David, on OOo databases, some tutorials in flash form. One of 
them explains how to create relations.

We are supposed to go to "tools", "relations", and create them. 
Unfortunately, it pops up with:

]   OpenOffice.org Base: Relation design
]
]   The database does not support relations


How come? I'm using relations on that same database (mysql) from Rekall. 
What's the problem with OOo? Is it that OOo can only use them on its own 
native format?

I'm using OpenOffice_org-2.2.1-43.1 from suse (in 10.2)
