Re: [libreoffice-users] Can't open LO Base file


Howard -

I'm thinking you're finding the file and double-clicking it to open it in
Base? If so the fact that the file name starts with file:///... and the
message is the file can't be loaded, NOT it can't be found, has me thinking
the file association is changed. If the file association has changed then
the message makes sense if you're double-clicking the file to open it .

Have you tried:
- Open Base
- select the option to "Open an existing database file" in the Database
Wizard
- click the "Open" button
- navigate to the file
- select it and
- click the "Open" button?

If opening Base then using Base to open the file works then the problem is
likely a wrong file association.
