OpenOffice question

I want to create a database similar to Microsoft's Access application. How could I do that with OpenOffice???

I want to create an employee database like SS#, Name, Employee ID, Dept. # and so on. But I dont have M$ Access program and Im only and (and I want to) use OpenOffice.

Is there a program within OpenOffice thats similar to Access???

Start OpenOffice. Click on Help, then click on Index. Enter the term 'database', as see what OpenOffice has to offer.
I haven't tried OO database; I default to MySQL.
If you also have StarOffice, you might investigate Adabas, the database app which comes with StarOffice.

I believe this functionality isn't built into OOo, but there are programs like Kexi, Knoda and Rekall, which are database frontends that look a lot like MS-Access.
If you can read German, they were reviewed in the latest number of the German LinuxUser magazine.
Edit: It seems there is database integration in the soon-betatesting 2.0.
