Description of problem:
When selecting File->Auto Pilot->Report nothing happens.
This was a clean fresh install of FC3 on two machines using UK
English, don't think that matters.
I did a strace on ooffice to see if any files were missing, but the
action of selecting menu option report caused no file requests.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Nothing happens.
Expected Results: Launching of the reports template.
I wanted to generate reports from mysql database - Instead of using MS
Windows and Access or SQL Server.
If you upgrade your OpenOffice.org to the latest update for FC3 then
that menu entry File->Autopilot->Reports is removed (#107298). The
reason it is removed in that newer rpm, and doesn't work in your
current version is because the Report wizard is written in java, and
we don't build or ship openoffice java components.
Its a pity, but we could do nothing about java components with FC3
except to remove the spurious menu entry.
