I have been eagerly migrating all my usage from Microsoft Office to
LO, and I would appreciate some advice on converting from Access.
So SQL access to the data is vital. The data is stored
in Dropbox so it can be accessed from Windows or Ubuntu easily - but
never simultaneously. I do have access to a MySQL server as part of
my web hosting but I would rather not bother with setting one up
locally for just this application.
"Setting up" and using a PostgreSQL server locally, especially since the
SDBC driver now comes with LibreOffice, is trivial. And there's nothing
that's available for free that will keep your data safer (from
corruption) than PostgreSQL.
You don't even have to "install" PostgreSQL to use it, but of course it
will be more convenient to use then.
