I'm a bit worried of the quality of the Base Guide. Due to the speed of
translating the Base Guide I am afraid that the quality of the guide is
less than normal.
For example at the top on page 14 of "Introduction to Base (6.2)"
chapter it says "The field names forename (first name), surname (last
name), and birthday are likely to be clear. In addition, a field called
ID was added. This field will later take a value which is unique for
each record. A unique key field is necessary for the embedded database.
Otherwise, no records can be entered in the table. This key field is
called the /primary key/ in databases."
The sentence "A unique key field is necessary for the embedded database"
is imho not correct. a table has an unique key (primary key), not
databases. Also the primary key is used on tables in all sorts of
databases. It is not only valid for Embedded databases.
I recommend to check the (technical) details in the manual in order to
provide correct info.
another thing what we have seen in de manual while translating it into
the Dutch language is the usage of numbered captions for images in the
In "Introduction to Base (6.2)" chapter and only the first 10 images are
having numbered captions and after that it stops... why is this?
Going thru the text It was sometimes not clear which text is related to
Seen this also in the "Creating a Database" chapter.
I promissed to redo the screenshots, Is it OK to do them in Ubuntu? I
hope I can keep up the pace....
Also the Index of the chapters has to be updated....
