This is a way to import multiple pictures into an empty text with OpenOffice Writer, one picture per page, with a database report.

  • install the Sun Report Builder extension

  • create a database in the same directory as the pictures

  • enter or import in the database the file names of the pictures

  • in the database form, bind a picture control to that field.

This is a synthesis of a discussion on the OpenOffice users list. If you know more efficient methods, please let me know (mfioretti, at nexaima; dot net).
