Although, that being said, I am going to try to replicate the same
process that I am trying to achieve with Calc at a later date, on Base;
just to satisfy my curiosity of working with Base.

This is a difficult, non-intuitive development process. Base is an
extremely misleading tool. It does not help you by any means and the
database Base creates from scratch is not as useful as it could be. Just
playing with it to try out how it works, may lead you to the conclusion
that it does not work at all.

Ah, well, it doesn't sound like quite a good tool to use then. Still, seeing as it's offered along with LibreOffice, may as well take a peek at it and see if it could be made to work. I am trying to keep the spreadsheet as simple as possible so that other musicians may make use of it.

Well, file an enhancement request and see. I would not hold my breath
for this one because it is completely unspecific. There are literally
hundreds if not thousands of such requests.

Strange then, that we would not capitalize on all these requests. If there is such clamour for features, you would think that somewhere, features would be added. Imagine the shake-up in the world of spreadsheets if someone listened and delivered features. :-)

Yeh ... years ago, I used to code in Ashton Tate's DBaseIII ... back in the wild days of early RDBMS and CPM.

By the way, are you aware of menu:Data>Input Form?

No, but since you mentioned it, I looked it up and it looks really useful. I notice that something similar is offered in Calc (Data->Form)
