Glad to hear it. But IMHO Base is just nowhere compared  to Access (which
itself isn't much to shout about). And OO Basic compared to VBA similarly.
As an ex-programmer I'm always keen to automate any process, but the OO
Basic learning curve turns many people off (as far as I can see from
bulletin board comments - even this one) before they even start.

Agreed that MS have problems in forwards compatibility. But that's an
impossible dream. Can OO version 1 open OO version 3 documents?

Unfortunately I'm too short of time to contribute to OO/LO development - I
suspect there's another 2-year learning curve.
