Yes, but similar problems do not necessarily require similar
solutions.  And the lack of a dedicated mailing list is why Brian
suggested contacting the package maintainer and/or R-help.

Determining the structure of your data does not require a report built
with odfWeave.  This may be a more appropriate mailing list if you
were searching for a more general solution, but your problem is really
with odfWeave.  Brian and I don't intend to be rude; your question
will simply be more likely answered better/faster on a different list.
