I'm almost thinking of installing something like MySQL and writing my
front-end in Java.

I'm sorry if I'm being slow, or not following the conversation properly
(lots going 
on here at the moment), but, if you're thinking like that, what's wrong
with Base?
The things you'd need to do, Base does.
The things that approach won't get you, something to present your data,
use Writer/Calc for.

The two problems I've registered (which have a multitude of subsidiaries,
I know, 
I'm not trying to say Base is great yet, it's clearly not), is that the
whole thing 
crashes, the answer is use a back end not the embedded system, and the
are cr*p, building your own front end to (eg) MySQL won't help you there.

Andreas' approach of writing queries and setting up Writer documents to
use them
does what you want, doesn't it?

Writing documentation for this approach would be a good idea to broadcase

I think I'm being misunderstood here. I've never mentioned trying to link
Base and Word - that's not something I want to do. All I originally asked
about was an incorrect display of a query in a form. This has been ignored
in the general discussion on the suitability or Base as a general-purpose
user-oriented database front-end and in its future development. I've said my
two pen'orth on that subject, as I'm certainly not competent to discuss the
politics involved. So will shut up here.
