No, it is not a "Gotcha" for using MySQL and Base. It may be a
"Gotcha" because of how you have created the database. Creating a
database is somewhat like building a house: you need to have planned out
what you want first and how to create it. This does take time, but it is
well worth it. Some to several problems that you have had is because
there seems to be no well thought out plan/design for the database from
the beginning. Part of this involves normalizing your tables. As stated,
70 fields in one table is very often an indication that the table is not
normalized. This can lead to errors in entered data.
The Primary-Foreign key pairs in MySQL are defined in views,
queries, and forms. All of these are written to the Base field (.odb).
What I think may work is to create a view that uses the essential fields
from your 'Member' table and the needed fields from the 'eMail' table.
Then you could create a form for this view that has the things you want.
Re - My previous post.... Have been doing some Googling etc and found
the 'Relationships Window' for setting Relationships.
I can get the Window up, select my Tables but it _DOES NOT_ draw any
connecting lines or set any Relationships!!??
Is this another "Gotcha" of using MySQL and Base together? As it does
_NOT_ seem to work at all!!
I'm using PCLinuxOS 2012, LO Base 188.8.131.52 and MySQL 5.1.55
