Calc is mostly used now for membership lists and accounting in our local
Gardening club, and I have been thinking about Base for the membership
bit.  After reading in Francois' email that he finds it easy to use, I'll
probably give it a go.

Years ago when OO BAse first came out I did a piece about it. I took my wife's 
gardening club spreadsheet (Excel) opened it in OO Calc, exported as .csv. 
Imported into Base, set up forms etc. I know SFA about databases but I made it 
work OK. 

Wife then went back to Excel for all the usual reasons:

She knows it
She uses it at work
When she stopped being club sec she had to hand on the membership list to the 
next 'volunteer'.
