Hi,

I hope this is not taken as a cross post

- but in the hopes of finding people that might not otherwise drop into the Base list here and to try and garner thet widest possible sampling -

I have posted a number of polls on the Base list. If you have any opinions on these subjects then by all means take the time to drop by and - Be Heard

hmmm...with all the talk about needing MSO interoperability only one person on the forum is trying to connect to MS Access via Base?

Thanks for your input, in advance.

Hi,

You have 0% for using Firebird. This is because sadly Firebird is near unuseable with OpenOffice. Personally, I consider this a major flaw in the database module of OpenOffice.
