My friend wants a very simple standalone form for his desktop, which
uses this newly created text-file or a calc -file as dbase, to
search for a word and get all the definitions where this word
occurs. So, it should be a small form with 2 fields, one small entry
field for the search and a much larger field (window) where the answer appears.
As you suggest, it is easy to get your text into a two-column
spreadsheet array. A simple way forward, if the list is not too long,
is just to use the Find & Replace facility again. If you search for
the relevant word using Find All, all cells containing the text will
be highlighted. You can scroll down to see the highlighted material.
Otherwise, you probably do need a proper database.
o Start a new database (Base) document.
o Select Tables in the left "Database" column.
o In your spreadsheet, select the array of material.
o Drag the array into the lower "Tables" panel of the database window.
o Follow the instructions to create a table from the imported values.
o Spend part of the holiday season reading the Base documentation and
learning enough to be able to create the required form!
I trust this helps.
