Hi :)
From what Andreas and others say i think that is most of the problem with Base.  Too many great 
ideas that only got half done.  I guess it might be the same with macros.  

Apparently Andrew Pitonyak's guide is one of the best ways to get into macro programming
Regards from
Tom :)

Well, I seem to have started off quite a discussion. It's interesting that Andreas seems to agree 
with me that OO isn't really for programming. And the use of ODF is  extremely important for 
intercommunicability, a point which isn't taken by many MS addicts.

But I'm not trying to use a database to write a form letter - I'm not even a fully-fledged 
business, just a freelance pianist. But I do like to play with applications, and occasionally 
write my own where I can't find a suitable share- or free-ware one. And Base just doesn't work 
well enough - too many bugs and I suspect not enough will to drive proper development - hence 
Andrea's comments on "Potemkin".

Tom's comment on 4 languages being available is fine, but as the API's so impenetrable I feel it 
would have been better idea concentrate on getting one language right rather than four languages 
wrong! Others are at liberty to disagree.

What database doe you think works better than OpenOffice or LibreOffice?
