Dan,
Sorry to report that I may have given you false hope here. The machine that has OpenOffice
on it, I mucked up the power port, in usual circumstances I would just install it here on
another machine. My issue there is my internet is on portable WiFi, and I am redlining my
allotted monthly usage. 

I will start working on this other machine here directly. And see if I can get you an answer.

I'll try to answer as best I can.  I was in OpenOffice.org Base.  I highlighted my mailing
list and then selected edit from the drop down, which took me into the table design and I
made the changes from there.




So, here is where I become really computer illiterate, how do I find out the application from
incubator?  And how do I share the current SQL?  I'll attach a copy of the file if that is
helpful.  My head is getting completely done in at this point.





John, thank you so much for your patience and willingness to help!

Yes I suppose it does thank you. Ok now for the other part of the question; what 
application are you running from incubator.

And when the database file was edited what did you use to edit it, I.e. deleting 
the item_I'd on the table,  
Also can you dropbox or google share the current SQL file. The current sql file 
in conjunction with looking at the original script, I believe I can fix this.

Ok then hmmm, who installed, and is the winxp running wamp? What is the database 

platform that you are running on, mssql, mysql, or which. That's what I was 
saying, is that I need to know the setup.

This may sound dumb, but I don't think there is a server setup.  This is just an 

old Windows XP.  We are a very small office, which is why I don't think there is 

one.

Yeah I presumed you were using phpmyadmin or some other GUI to manage the 
database. If not then it would be done on command line.

I guess you need to explain the server setup,  because I am just guessing its 
linux

Hi John.


There is a recent backup now, but not from before the problem happened.  As I 
have a little more than basic computer knowledge, what and how do I "dump the 
SQL"?


Thanks guys for trying to help.  Much appreciated!
Shannon

Stupid question here, ia there no recent backup of the database?

Also, you can dump the SQL the way it is right now, then in an editor and an 
empty column in the location where the column that got deleted, and just set the 



field to null.

Back to the database and drop the table, then import your modified SQL file

> I think I maybe have a big "fubar" on my hands.  And pardon my ignorance 
because I don't "speak" computerese.  Yesterday I created a Table Mailing List 
database.  All was well.  Today I needed to add some more people to the list.  
That was fine.  Was also able to sort it to keep it alphabetized by last name.  
My problem started when I wanted to change the ID field to automatic.  I think 
that it accepted the change, but didn't change when I opened the table again.  I 



went back into edit to change it back and somehow I deleted the ID field, which 
to me was not that big of a deal, but it moved all of my information over a 
field i.e., my "first name" was now in the Title field and all of the Title 
information was gone.  So, I went in and renamed the fields to what they were 
now showing.  When I went back to look at the table again, the information had 
shifted again and this time the first names were missing.  Each change I made in 



the field titles resulted in more missing information.  How do I get ALL of my 
info back???  I don't want to have to start all over and I did not have the 
backup copy option selected.  I have in the meantime chosen it.  Please help 
soon!  Thank you!

Try this: With Writer open, use the F4 key to open the Data Source
window. You should see a list of databases on the left side including Table 
Mailing List. If you see it, click the arrow to its left to reveal
the queries and tables it contains. Click the arrow in front of Tables to reveal 



the tables (there is probably only the one table). Click the table. The right 
side of the Data Source window contains a table with the field names for the 
column headings. In spite of what you wrote, all
of the fields and their data is likely in this table.
This is another possibility: What you did was to change the settings in 
Mail Merge. If this is the case and you still have the table
with the data, you probably should Begin mail merge from the beginning selecting 



the fields needed and placing them where you need them.
