A link is formed to an external file with file://C: (three slash)
And correctly two file://C:
What should be the bug?
A path is written with three slashes:
Its the normal behavior in LO Basic.
Please give a little bit more information and describe where to find a buggy behavior.
It is worth trying to create an odb with an external Firebird file.
I have tried on Windows 7 (installed version Libreoffice) and Windows 10 (portable version).
An error occurs when I create a new database. LO can't find the file.
If I remove unnecessary slash when you select a file creation passes without error.
Maybe you should try?
I selected a connection to an existing database in the Wizard. Type in drop-down list the Firebird file.
I could only test with OpenSUSE 42.2 rpm Linux.
I have tried to connect to a Firebird-file. It gives an error:
*unsupported on-disk structure for file /home/user/Dokumente/LibreOffice/Firebird/libretest.fdb; found 11.2, support 12.0
The path is this:
If I will remove one slash after file:/ the whole LO crashes immediately when trying to connect to the database.
I don't get any working connection to a Firebird-file directly.

Firebird external database file for testing.
Did it really work for you with two slashes, not three slashes? Please attach a database-file (no data inside needed) where it will work.

Reading https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43643098/why-do-i-get-an-unsupported-on-disk-structure-error-in-flamerobin, it would mean your ods file contains structure of Firebird 2.5 and you got Firebird server 3.0
However, I suppose it's a brand new ods file so it should be synchronized with Firebird 3.0
I'll give it a try as soon as my local build be finished.
Tamas/Lionel: thought you might be interested in this one.
I think you need to check under Windows.
Can there be an error only in case of Windows?
In the content.xml generated string
This file is in LO opens but gives an error when navigating to the Tables folder.
If you change to
starts to work
Now on computer does not have test-file FBD.
If you want I can later send it to.
You need file version Firebird 3.0

Could be the database is Firebird 2.5. So I'm looking for an external database 3.0.
I can't test for the moment because I got a crash when just trying to launch Base.
No pb with Writer, Calc or Impress

Firebird 3.0 file
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could open a Firebird 3.0 (attached file).
Indeed, there are 3 slashes but it opens.
I agree, that seeing 3 "/" is a bit weird.
I put in cc the bug which was preventing me to test it (entirely my fault but hopefully it's fixed now).
Test with OpenSUSE 42.2 64bit rpm Linux and Firebird 3.0 - file https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=139761
No problems to connect to the file with
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Linux 4.4; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: kde4;
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); Calc: group
Tested on LO 188.8.131.52 (installation on windows 7).
But if on your OS everything is OK. I'm not going to argue.
Also WFM on

I get the following error message :
*Unable to complete network request to host "MYHOSTNAME".
*Failed to locate host machine.
*The specified name was not found in the hosts file or Domain Name Services.
If I remove one of the slashes from the default triple slash path, I get the same error as reported here:
Code d'erreur: 1
*unsupported on-disk structure for file C:\USERS\ALEXT\DOWNLOADS\LIBRETEST.FDB; found 11.2, support 12.0
Now, if I repeat the test with the sample db provided on 2018-02-10, and remove a single slash in the path, I can successfully open the fdb.
There is therefore a difference in the fdb files provided as examples:
- the first example, provided by Shar, doesn't work, irrespective of the number of slashes ;
- the second example, provided by Robert, only works if I remove a single slash from the path to the file.
@tamas : one for you ?
@Shar : did this work correctly in a previous version with a FB3.0 file ? If so, then, we can mark it as a regression.

I had uploaded the first attachment. Was a Firebird 2.5-file. So I have set this to obsolet.

Julien has added a new attachment with FB 3.0-file. This should work, but seems it doesn't with Windows.
