Open Office 2.0.1 Base Import DBF CharSet ?

Is there a way to force Open Office 2.0.1 Base to import a DBF file using a certain character set ?

If you open the dbf with Open Office Calc it prompts you for character set and in my case defaults to Western Europe (DOS/OS2-850/International) which imports the UK "" pound sign correcty.

But when I open Base it just imports the DBF without any prompt for char set (that I could see) and all the "" end up as squares.
