Hi Andreas,

Thank you very much. Yes, I have an embedded data base, and yes, in the
temp folder when I open a form in the database a new temporary file
appears and when I close it the file goes away.

You have a much more elaborate system and use than I do. I have about
2,600 records in mine. I use it for doing some mail merge with writer,
and basically for keeping information and updates for clients I work
with. Is there a simple way to use the LibreOffice Front end with my
form and use another database for the database file without it becoming
a nightmare in trying to set it up? I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

Thank you so much!


Well, your small address db may well kept in the embedded HSQLDB if that database is not constantly updated and you keep your daily backups and if you can live with the fact that only one user has write access at the same time. In case of a crash you would have to rewind the whole thing to the last backup. Our external HSQLDB is constantly updated from several client machines at the same time. In case of a crash we would not lose many records (if any). All I had to do was installing the HSQLDB server, extract the script file from my embedded HSQLDB draft and write a configuration file for the HSQL server. Finally I added a 5 log-in users to that database. Writing configuration options for a server into a plain text file is a small piece of work for a Linux user but may be a giant leap for a Windows user. Databases are professional tools.
