OK, all fixed at last - by a clunky method, but hey - it worked!

I had the data in a CSV so I loaded that into an ODS sheet, then pasted
from there into a new table via Base, creating a new primary index in the
process. That worked!

What are you talking about? Of course there is a command line interface
MySQL in Windows. I use it all the time. Just go to Run and type mysql in
the Open: box. You'll get a Command prompt with mysql command line ready

Hmmmmm It isn't quite that simple in Windows (no command line mysql
but I tried HeidiSQL and I can connect and amend data with no problems.
This is a bit late. SQL can be used to do many things including defining a primary key. I'm not sure right now what the required SQL statement should be. I do know that it requires using Tools -> SQL. This opens a dialog in which you can enter SQL statements and execute them. This would also require getting the HSQLDB guide for version 1.8. The version on the hsqldb website is for 2.8.
