Thanks Dan and Alan

I know about the Base > Calc link but I have been using Base since about 2010 and had many, many crashes where in most cases the crash takes out the data as well and you need to spend hours and hours re-building the Database and re-designing your Forms etc. This has happened repeatedly with the embedded engine and also with the MySQL engine. As far as I'm concerned there is basic unstability in Base itself which makes it unusable on a day-to-day basis!!
This was why I was wanting to try another route.
I tried Kexi but it is still to early in its development to be reliable.
I wanted to try Glom but it is unavailable on my OpSys (PClinuxOS).
So I was hoping to try a simpler option of Calc plus a Form.
Thanks for pointing out to me the 'Form' option under Data - I had not noticed that. Unfortunately it is not very useable for me which is a great pity as this would be the perfect answer if it was.

Thanks for the pointers - my search continues..........
Any suggestions of a reliable Flat File Database would be of interest to me.
