I have read with interest the comments about Libre Office. Over the years I have managed large (100 Million records and small databases ( 1 million records or less) using Oracle, running in Unix machines. I have also developed a number of small ( less than 100,000 records ) using a variety of data base software (e. g. Paradox, Dbase, MS Access etc ). Over the last few years, since I retired I have run Oracle on Linux. Mysql, and now Libre Base. For my current needs I have found Libre Base more than adequate. I use straight out of the box and use its internal data base engine. I currently run four data bases, the largest has about 10,000 records. I have found it possible to produce the reports I need and the data summaries etc just as easily as I could in MS Access or even Oracle. The developers deserve congratulations on producing this product. If I were forced to pay for MS products I would have to stop my computing since XP is no longer supported and I cannot afford to buy the latest windows and associated software.

Like all software Libre Base has its quirks and the documentation probably needs improving but overall it is a very useful product. If problems occur it is well worth reading the available documentation and then if the solution is not obvious e-mail the list.
