That's great but I can not add any more tables, linked or otherwise.

A few weeks of perusing the manual, google, and the help files has not
provided an answer.
Maybe I need to use MS Access.
You are using Base to connect to a spreadsheet. Because of that, you can
only add, modify, nor remove data within the spreadsheet. So, if you
want to add more tables, add more sheets that each has the data for a
new table. Then save the spreadsheet, close and then reopen Base. The
new tables should show up in the database. And as you have discovered,
you will want to name each new sheet with the name you want for the table.
I've done this several times.
Now how do I create non-linked tables inside the same DB?
How do I link to another external spreadsheet using the same DB?
Can I link to only one spreadsheet at a time?
I have data in four different spreadsheets that I need to consolidate
into one large report. The data in those spreadsheets changes every
week. I don't want to have to copy and paste the data from those four
spreadsheets onto the appropriate tab of linked spreadsheet every week.
From your email I gather that all tables must be tabs on the one
spreadsheet that is linked. Is that a true statement? Seems pretty
