Hi Jim,


Just checked with Ubuntu's package manager and Base was in fact not
installed. Used it to install Base and now the option appears so I
should be able to proceed. Sort of surprised as I thought the entire
suite had been installed.

Ubuntu, in its infinite wisdom, decided not to install Base by default
along with the other modules - quite why, I have no idea, but this is
not LibreOffice's fault, unfortunately. I agree that it is most
frustrating however, especially when, as a continuous user of previous
versions, the default meta packet install did put Base in there for you.
Go figure.

Alex,

Thanks for the info. It clears up another thing that was bothering me. How did a DB file get on my machine if Base was not installed?

I started using Ubuntu at at around 9.04 or 9.10 and did a distribution upgrade to 10.04. So at this point Base was installed and I must have created the DB file. When I went to 12.04 I decided to do a clean install. I popped in a new hard drive and installed 12.04 and slowly transfered stuff from the 10.04 hard drive. I must have transfered that DB file at that time.

Regards, Jim
