Hello Zed,

I haven't used 6.4 much yet except with already existing databases. With
6.0 (on Ubuntu) it was required that there be an auto incrementing index
field or the import would fail with messages like you describe.

If your ID field is not set to auto increment modify the field property so
it auto increments then try the import again.

Using LibreOffice Base v6..4.2.2 on Linux Mint v20.0 Mate
I am trying to copy and paste a LibreOffice Calc file from that program
to Base.  Here is what I have done so far.

Calc - created spreadsheet
A = ID (Default format)
B = Name (Default format)
C = Location (Default format)
D = Date - First (Format as DD MMM YYYY)
E = Date - Last (Format as DD MMM YYYY)

Created a database named Reactors and created fields:
ID Interger [INTEGER]
Name   Text [VARCHAR]
Location Text [VARCHAR]
Gender Text [VARCHAR]
No. Number [NUMERIC]
Date - First Date [DATE]
Date - Last Date [DATE]

Opened spreadsheet and highlighted columns  (as listed above)
(as a test I chose only Rows 1-6)

Chose Copy and navigated to Database and clicked to Paste

 From Menu presented, chose Append data (the default option)
clicked Next and unticked ID
clicked Create and following error message was displayed

Warning.  Wrong data type:java.lang.IllegalArgumentException.

Searched both Internet (in general) and LibreOffice website (in
particular) but found nothing to help.

Obviously I am doing something wrong but I am unable to find the
error.All help will be very welcome.
