I work for a non-profit youth organization, and we are trying to figure out
a way to organize all of our members' information without a big cost to
us.  Would I be able to create something like an address book using a
template in the LibreOffice Database?

I am envisioning something where we can't see all the information right
when we open it.  I'd like it to be some kind of format where we have to
click on a tab or something to view each member's information, and they
would have an entire page dedicated to them.  Is that possible to do?

Thank you,

Yes, you can type some name into a list box, hit tab, followed by enter and get the related record of the selected list box item or a table view with more than one item related to the list box item. This can be done without programming.

No, there can not be any such template because each database structure depends on the exact data you are going to store in it.

First you need some database up and running. The creation of a database requires expert skills and appropriate software tools for the database type in question. Then you can connect a Base document to that database and add your office related tools which are Writer templates for serial letters, reports and may be some analysis in Calc.

Base can create a special type of database Base from scratch which is not suitable for anything more important than your private DVD collection. It is just fine for database tutorials and demos wrapped in a single file.

Hope that helps
