Firebird support is still "experimental" for the moment as there are a
number of as yet unresolved bugs still needing to be fixed before it can
be considered "operational".

Yes, the aim is for the frontend to work in the same way, irrespective
of the backend database engine that is supported.

The main differences are those in the names of functions, correspondence
of function definitions, data types, and user-defined functions.

Drew Jensen has drawn up a comparison of the functions on the
LibreOffice wiki, and of course, as Robert has mentioned, there is his
Base Handbook.

Open the Calc file.
Open your ODB file, and click on the Tables icon.
Select all of the cells in the cell range you want to import.
With the selection still active, drag and drop the selected cells onto
the table into which you want to import the data.
The Calc to Base import wizard should start.
Use the wizard to define how you want to import the data (data
definitions, definitions plus data, append data only, etc) and check
that the data types/data you are importing correspond to what you want.
As Robert has said, you need a unique primary key field to be present
either in your table définition, or already in your Calc data.
