Off hand, I think that you are moving in the right direction. I have
not looked at this in a very long time, but, I do have some macro
information for use with Base (Written against a much earlier version of
Base) available here:
This is a direct link to the document
Note that my Macro documents contain the maros in the document, which
makes it possible to copy any macros that you want to use simply by
importing the libraries. On the other hand, the documents contain
macros, which means that you will be warned that they do contain macros.
I try to create my documents such that you can run the macros directly
by clicking on buttons embedded in the documents to test them.
I am a bit overwhelmed with overdue tasks, but, if you notice something
that is obviously no longer correct, please let me know.

Thanks for the quick reply. My books are somewhat out of date, with
Getting Started being 4.2 and Base Handbook being 4.0. I had,
noticed that both have some help with macros. Oce I'm sure that's
way to go, I'll consult them - although perhaps I should download the
updated versions first :-)
