As an FYI, there is an R list just for database access related issues:


Both OpenOffice and LibreOffice use HSQLDB, which is a java based database. There are no ODBC connections supported by HSQLDB. However, I believe that some have had success with JDBC and there is the ODB package on CRAN (http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/ODB/).
