I do not have a good answer, but I have had a bit of experience. I have
not worked directly with Base in a while, so my information may be

on using Base with the internal HSQL database, and not while connection
Base to an external DB such as MySQL.
I'm new to Libreoffice (I'm using it in Windows 8.1).
I tried to delete columns in an existing table created under OpenOffice (in Windows XP), and this
causes the whole table to be dissapear. Would appreciate any advice.
I vaguely remember that using the GUI I was not able to drop a column.
When I did need to do this, I created a new table with the columns that
I desired and I copied all of the old data into the new table using a
single SQL statement. I never attempted to drop a column using a SQL
statement (as opposed to using the GUI).
Especially since you experienced data loss, be sure to keep backups of
your documents; always!
