"CREATING A DATA SOURCE
First, you need to connect OpenOffice.org to an address book that
contains your customers’ contact data. OpenOffice.org can
talk to numerous address book formats, including the address book
module of the Mozilla Browser Suite, which is an open source
software package available for a variety of platforms. Better yet,
OpenOffice.org also includes a wizard that allows you to easily set
up a Mozilla-based address data source.
"Go to File > Wizards > Address Data Source. In the
Address Data Source Wizard, choose Mozilla/Netscape and then select
which address book you want to use (you can choose between
Collected Addresses or Personal Address Book). Give the data source
a name and choose a path where it will be stored. Make sure that
you select the option, “Yes, register the database for
me,” then click Finish to close the wizard.
"Tip: You can also use the Wizard to connect to other data
sources containing addresses. For example, to connect to the
Thunderbird address book, select the Other data source option,
press Next, click on the Settings button, and then select the
Thunderbird Address Book from the Data type drop-down menu."
