if I haven't forgotten:

Select, in gnumeric, the range of rowsXcolumns that you want to get from
the database (yes, that's a shortcoming right now, since you must know
in advance what the database would return). Once the range is selected,
enter as the expression for it:

=execSQL("datasource_name","username","password","SELECT * FROM table")

and then, press SHIFT+INTRO

not yet, but we're working on a plugin system for all GNOME Office
applications (gnome-office module in GNOME CVS), which wil include all
the infrastructure for sharing data between all those apps. And, of
course, one of the things will be a plugin for database access, which
would be used in any GNOME Office applications.
