Hi Alex,

Sorry I was so vague, when I start the database section and select tables,
the Wizard comes up but disappears as soon as I try to click it.  Sorry, not
very technical language.


That's a little bit more helpful, Liz, but I think we still need to
know more details. Forgive me if I'm being too obvious ...

Can you step us through exactly what you did? Are you starting a brand
new database, or opening an existing one? If it's an existing one,
what is its name? (including the letters after the dot)

Please click on Help in the menu bar, then About LibreOffice, and tell
us what it says immediately below the the LibreOffice logo - there
should be two lines before all the copyright details.

Is your computer running Windows? If so, what version? Or are you
using a Mac? Or maybe you're running Linux. If so, do you know what

Are you clicking on the line that says "Use wizard to create table"?

Just ignore any question you don;t understand, but precise answers to
the other questions will help the experts here with a diagnosis.

It may be that you need to read a getting started guide. I'm sure
there's someone here who will point you to one on the web soon. It's
worth reading carefully. I should warn you - databases are harder than
you might think!
