I have been running a MySQL Database with LO Base as a front-end for
some time now -
and VERY successfully indeed compared to the built-in engine in LO Base!!
(My OpSys is PClinuxOS 32-bit)
For a variety of reasons I decided to "rebuild" my system last week. I
have a back-up of my Database as a CSV file and have completely wiped
the hard drive and reinstalled the OpSys and all relevant programs and
copied all my data into /home.
I now need to set-up my Database again but have a question.
(My Database has only one table with about 2500 records and each record
has 80 fields.)
Which is the correct procedure??
1) Set-up the Database in MySQL and create an empty table to import the
CSV into. Then link Base to it.
2) Set-up the Database in MySQL then use LO Base to create the table and
do the import
3) Set-up the Database using LO Base and then import the data.
Thanks for any pointers.
