Thanks, Don, this isn't my day.

I can see no way to save my calc as a database under Save as.  I can find no import option in base. 
 And copying the entire sheet and pasting to the first field on a form doesn't work.

Another thing:  the column names in the base table are not in exact conformance with the column 
names in the calc sheet.  The one is in English, for example, the other in Swedish, and I was 
hoping for a procedure to assign field names in the one to field names in the other.

Is your spreadsheet set up as a database with fields? Meaning in the top row, something like 
Column 1 <firstname>, Column 2 <lastname>, Column 3 <street>, etc. If it is set up like that, I 
know you can import that data into base. If the spreadsheet is setup as a database with fields in 
the top row, you could probably do it from there if it is saved as a database and not just a 
spreadsheet document. I really don't know though since you are getting out of the realm of my 
knowledge. I know you can import database information in calc into base, and I know you can have 
great success printing labels from base with the table style templates.

Is there any easy way to get an address list in a spreadsheet into a base database?
