Hi, I've been using .base long enough to get fed up with its database wizard when I open .base.

The thing is it has a list of my recent documents and I can select the one I want, but it doesn't open it... and if I click on open I have to go through the pollava of finding the right file in the right folder.... it'd be nice for that bug to be fixed, but in any case I prefer the good old file open or recent files option.... but how can I turn off that wizard?

Hmm I normal don't see it.

When you create a new database have to do the wizard. To setup the database so that there is a database or a connection to a database.

I have database links on my desktop Click and open no wizard. A work around

Or use recent documents from a Writer or Calc document.

Strange recent documents normal works for me as well.

I think you have a feature request to fill out. Next version/s I hope.

The wizard opens, you choose the radio button for 'Open an existing database file'. The drop down list of recent files is active. You select a database form that list. You then click on the 'Finished' button. Not the Open button.

Does this not open the database for you?

OK, DrewJensen, that works, thanks, still a bit of a pollava in my opinion, but better than I was doing before!

ooh... might try oiaohm's idea... think that'll suit me better
