Yes, in Calc row 1 is usually a set of fields defined (headers) by there type within a sheet (single tab). This is the table.

The essence already exists. When copying/importing data to Base from Calc, it request whether or not the first line is a definition. In a "save as Base" scenario, it is assumed, but is checked for:
Field Undefined - Row 1 column X is blank - cannot save as Base
Field Undefined - Row 1 column X is formatted as (Date,Number,Text, Etc..) Are you sure you wish to continue?
If it passes the test, the table is defined.

The crux of the problem is an engine that redefines references, formulas and query ranges in Calc to SQL as they become the Base Queries.
