Actually, the OP (me) started with Calc database because changes are
easy. Changes are still under way (field names, new fields, etc.), so
I'm using Base to access Calc, which gives me queries.

The next step is a real db, but I'm still sorting that out. I'm not
interested in RAM-resident, embedded for reasons pointed out in this
thread. As the db requirements become more clear (size, number of
users, structure), I'll decide. Could it be a future version of Base?
Possibly, depending on how it progresses over the rest of the year. I'm
looking for robust, good performance, reliable, and stright forward
setup (not necessarly easy, but not requiring a db phd).
