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

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?
