Hi Mark,

Is it possible to link Libreoffice Base as a front end to tables in
another Libreoffice Base as a back end?

Not that I know of, as the embedded hsqldb which is the default db
engine in an ODB file created with LO is mono-user by design.

What can be done, however :

This enables you to have multi-user access to a hsqldb database via an
ODB file.

It is not possible to do what I had envisioned due to the single user
paradigm of the built in hsqldb database.  To pull it off you need to
install a local copy of the hsqldb database from this URL

Having done that you can then create a new Base front end linked to the
newly installed hsqldb hsqldb.jar file using the JDBC driver.

Once you have that done you can create tables to your heart's delight.
As long as you have the hsqldb database located in a directory that is
shared on the network you can access the tables from anywhere on the
