Hi :)
The way Andreas describes Base's internal back-end makes a lot of sense out
of what i have always heard about the internal back-end functioning so
badly.  Trying to read/write into a file inside a zip-file is often tricky
and i just hadn't thought about that wrt Base.

However, i was under the impression that the devs move to using a different
internal back-end would give them a chance to do a better job of it.
Sometimes prototyping really helps identify difficult areas.  Also running
a system for a long time does sometimes flag up issues that may not have
been noticeable at the time.

So i thought the move to a different internal back-end would at least make
it possible to upgrade that back-end and maybe keep it less heavily tweaked
and thus more inline with their own documentation to help people with all
sorts of issues.  Even just a couple of things like that might be a huge
Regards from
Tom :)

Without Base you give up the capability to print serial letters and
labels from lists.The vast majority of Base users are Writer users creating
a serial letter or sheet of labels. These wizards generate Base documents
in the background. In 99% of all these cases the Base documents constitutes
a connection to a spreadsheet.

You have described my situation exactly. I use Base once a year, to print
out address labels for Christmas cards. I keep the address list in a
spreadsheet and link to Writer through Base. It took me forever to learn
how to do it, but now that I know, it works great.
