The only reference, I found to DoCmd in the LO Base Guide 7.3 is on
page 504 (Special commands), i.e. rather brief ("To name a few").

As the employed syntax compiles in LOBase without error, I assume it is
correct as described below, so far. So I'm looking for a better
explanation for the behaviour.

By the way, I am running 

Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 30(Build:2)
CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 5.14; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); UI: en-GB
Calc: threaded

LO Base is my front end toward a Mariadb (V10) as backend database
server system.

I am not familiar with "DoCmd.RunSQL", I will have to look it up
(unless you have a few links).  Is DoCmd a server? 

I have not used Base with Macros in a long time, but, last time I
did, I was creating connections to a database and then running SQL
commands using a connection object. 

I have examples in AndrewBase.odt if that is of any help to you. (called Random DB
Ramblins, and yes that is spelled incorrectly).

a LOBase Macro in Basic?

My assumption was 
X = "SQL string"

The SQL string runs correctly is correct when executed as SQL Command
in the Base Tools/SQL window.

The Basic Macro with the above statemsnt compiles without error when
the SQL command text is enclosed in "" quotes. But at runtime it
with the message that the variable X is not set. However, a Basic
statement shows the correct value for X.

(By the way, the Watch function displays no values for any variable.
Not sure if it should)

My conclusion is that I ma using the wrong syntax for DoCmd.RunSQL

Any ideas?
