Only in Forms and Reports. Not in the data (Tables) or in the Queries.
I haven't used Base yet and don't really know so this is just guessing from my impression of what
goes on ...
I think you are meant to use Writer or Calc to "connect to" or "link to" the Queries in Base. Then
you use fields in much the way you would "mail merge". That means you can apply normal formatting
to the fields or the text and stuff around that in the rest of the Writer or Calc document.
Does this link describe how to do that?
There was this link on the main LibreOffice website
I hope to start reading this quick guide or handbook that is in the process of being translated
from the original that was written in German
The chapter "Linking to Databases" is the other way around. It's about using external tables in
MySql or PostgreSQL rather than having the tables in the internal back-end.
I get confused around then but i think Base then 'just' has the queries and the relationships
between the tables. Then Base feeds into Forms and Reports created in Writer. So Base is a bit
like a bridge?
