A major feature of forms in Apache OpenOffice is that they can be data aware. You create form documents where the user manipulates data from a database that is accessible in Apache OpenOffice. For more details about data sources, refer to chapter Database Access. This includes data from any table of a database, or data from a query based on one or more tables.
The basic idea is that a logical form is associated with a database result set. A form control model, which is a child of that form, is bound to a field of this result set, exchanging the data entered by the user with the result set field.
