Hi :)
You might find this website more useful;

Also the Polish language mailing list might be easier as you can use
or if your main language is something else then there is probably a
different mailing list for that too.

I think most people use spreadsheets (ie Calc or Excel) to create an array
of numbers.

However if this for bookkeeping then you might find it better to use a
specialist tool such as GnuCash (also "Libre" and free OpenSource

It really depends on what you are trying to do.  If you think a database
might be better then using Base as a "front-end" with an "external
back-end" such as MySql/MariaDb, Postgresql or something else is probably a
good idea.  Some people have a go with a spreadsheet first as part of the
planning process before designing a database.

There is a book about how to use Base but it is primarily only available in
German.  The English one is quite outdated now (already!  Time flies!) and
the translator teams are often even smaller and mostly have only just begun
to think about translating the "Published Guides".  Of course they do have
the "built-in help" but it sounds like you really need something a bit more
hefty to get a good overview.  If you can find it in an appropriate
language then you might like the "Getting Started Guide"

Regards from
Tom :)

Just few days've gone, I had opportunity to discover your LibreOffice

I've got really impressed. Unfortunatly, there is not enough time, till
now, to answer the question:

Is the LO abbly, for example, to proceed efficiently a specific arrey of
numbers (a kind of compilation)?

I'm pretty sure, but to get forward I've attached  simple sample as below.

Is the spreadsheet, or rather is the database the proper tool?

Could you proceed the sample, please?

Best regards,

Andrew Anddos
