I have a MS access data base running under XP. For various reasons I am converting my ;laptops to run Ubuntu with LibreOffice. I have successfully transfered Thunderbird e-mail from XP to Ubuntu. I am able to transfer and read MS Word and Excel files to run under LibreOffice under Ubuntiu.

I cannot see how to transfer rhe MS Access to run uder LibreBase. I tried doing the conversion under XP by loading LibreOffice and then opening the Access data base using LibreBase. with the following results:

1 All tables were successfully converted and retained their data.
2 All vies finished as being defined as tables.
3 No forms were transferred.

Is there an easy way to convert Access data bases to run under LibreBase?

Can I get the vies transferred as vies ? Do I need to extract the SQL for the vies and then recreate them in Libre Base.

If I cannot transfer the forms directly then I will need to recreate them. I have looked at how forms work in LibreBase butr I cannot find out how to create a menu form which allows the juser to select other menu forms or data entry forms.

Is there a reort system in Libre Base?

Any help will be gratefully accepted
