Good Luck !


There has been no real movement over the last few years to get OOo Base
documentation, as far as I am concerned. I had the same issues when I
looked to find any documents for Base. I did see some odds-n-ends that
were for 1.x/2.x version of OOo, but nothing newer than that.

With Oracle in charge of OOo for almost a year, I do not think they
would want competition to their own data base "for-pay" product line. So
no help there. It is up to a group of document authors who worked on the
OOo documents to come up with LibreOffice versions. For my opinion,
there are not too many people there that work with Base. Also, opinion
again, the little I know about Base leads me to believe that the
"language" you create the data base controls, forms, and reports is the
largest part of the data base work. So if there are other sources for
documentation for those "languages", then people would look to them and
the issue would be to rewrite that type of documents for the OOo and now
LibreOffice package. I could easily be wrong, but I remember some
comments about that somewhere else.

Right now, the document people are doing their best to modify the
current set from OOo to LibreOffice, or just rewrite new ones.

There are two people working on a manual for base at ODFAuthors. The problem is that it is a slow process as almost everything has to be rewritten. If anyone wants to help with it go to and signup. Join the mailing list and offer to help. Writers and copy editors are needed and gladly welcomed.
