The Help button of the Database wizard dialog send to the wrong Help page (actually the default Help page for pages not found for the module).
1) File > New > database (wizard opens)
2) Click help button
The HID sent to the Help subsystem is "swriter/vcl/ui/wizard/Wizard". This HID does not exist in any page (suspicious to be a generic wizard ui dialog).
The HID to send to Help subsytem depends on the current page of the wizard. Page 2 of the wizard depends on the database connector selected in page 1. For example, if the connector is JDBC, the Help page for JDBC should open when clicking on Help button.
This bug has similarities with bug#129068

@Olivier, what should be the correct page to open ?
Probably this should open:
Dear Olivier Hallot,

If you have time, please do the following:

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
