I have a dBase database with several tables. How do I open this database
in Calc so that each table will have its own sheet?
Here something different than simple copy:
1. You make a .odb file for the dBase database and register it. That is
in File > New > Database. Make sure, that you have set the correct
character set in Edit > Database Properties > Additional Settings.
2. You open the spreadsheet and show "Data Sources". That is menu Edit
or Ctrl+Shift+F4. You should now see an area above the sheet, which has
on the left side an overview over your database files.
3. Drag a table (or query or view) from there to cell A1 on an empty
sheet. That will import the table. That is not a simple import, but the
spreadsheet is linked to the database table. It has generated a "data
range". Look in menu Data. You will see the import in "Select Range"
-and more important- you can use "Refresh Range" to bring changes from
the database table to the spreadsheet.
In case the database is not "connected" right-click the database name
and choose item "Registered databases" and select it.
And yet another way to copy:
Open the .dbf file in Calc and resave it with a different name.
