One for you.

Much users even don't read the program's help.
A light read over all the help, shows very well what the program can do and how, many samples there, and also can solve the majority of the cuestions on daily use. To drive a car is needed a license, in other words known the rules. Nobody was born learned.

May I correct you, you do not need a license for driving a car! When my son was 10 he had no license but I let him test driving my car! But if you do not know the features of it, e.g. how to handle the gears, then you may study the Instruction Book, the User's Manual or whatever it is called.

Just to avoid misunderstanding: I am talking about LibreOffice and it's LibreOffice Help -- not OpenOffice's. When I was new to LibO(-Base) I spent hours on trying to learn the logic of LibreOffice Help.
Try your self:
Let us say that you need to create a form (Base) in Design View based on a query , because you need fields from two tables in one of which you have a 'birthday' field that you want to be calculated as 'age' and want that age field visible on the form.
You know how to do in MSAccess but not in LibO-Base.
Start by pushing the LibreOffice Help button (lifebuoy)
Good luck!
