Greetings, gentlemen.

When I try to open dbase data base using LO Base I enter the path to the directory with dbf-files 
but there's no tables in LO Base? LO Calc opens dbf files but how to open them in
LO Base? Standard connection fails to work.

LO version: 3.4.2
OS: OpenSuse 11.4 64 bit

Best regards, Aleksey.

Base never opens any files other than the .odb files it creates. You always connect Base to some tabular data source.

[X] Connect to existing...
Type: <dBase>
Specify the directory (dBase has always been a database in a directory)
[x] Register data source
Save the .odb file

The .odb file is just a configuration file. It does not contain any database data. You may add simple SQL queries to that configuration.
