Hello everyone.


I have a Microsoft Access 2010 database that I would like to share with a
co-worker that is new to database software and does not use Access.  I
thought LibreOffice Base would be the free database software that would be
easiest for him to use, but I am having some trouble with it myself.  I
created a database file in Base and connected it to the Access file, but I
can't seem to edit the data in the tables in Base.  I can edit those data
just fine in Access, and the edits cascade into Base.  I just can't edit the
data in Base.
I'm not sure about an Access 2010 file, but I can easily edit the
NWind.mdb file in LO 3.5.3. Note: to edit the date in the table, you use
'Open' rather then 'Edit'. 'Edit' allows you to edit the Field names
etc. Also note that LO 3.5.3 (Windows version) has dropdown selections
for 'Microsoft Access' and 'Microsoft Access 2007'. I do not know if
'Microsoft Access 2007' includes Access 2010. Do you have a test file?

When you right click on the table & select 'Open' what occurs? Does the
table open for you?
