My doctors office uses a dBase based system for administration, keeping 
patient records and so on. It has integrated LO for many purposes, i.e. 
medical letters. As I was told, reading those dbf files using scripts is
(dbf_dump), modifying dbf files from outside the program however tedious, 
they use LO base for that purpose. Unfortunately, the SQL commands for
are limited.

I do a nightly second backup of the patient.dbf and have a Base document
connected to this backup file so this connection does not interfere with the
business application.
