On p.48 of of the Introduction chapter of the Base Guide v3.4 (Note: NOT the Base Handbook) the text states:
>The database we have been creating, Inventory.odb with added data, is available on line at:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications. You may wish to download it and compare what you have created with it.
Unfortunately though this old example file is not available on that page. I am raising this bug as a result of a user query on the AskLO site:
Whether the few old v3.4 ODT/PDF files are removed or the example ODB file provided I will leave to the Documentation team to decide, but clearly this is inconsistent and these old guides are evidently being used.
Link to example ODB is missing from Documentation web page.
Link to example ODB is provided on the Documentation web page.
Operating System: All
Version: 3.4 all versions
There is a media.odb. But indeed no inventory.odb. So confirming the bug.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.4 or later) https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT:
- Update the version field
- Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
- Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa
Thank you for your help!
