I have crated a database (openoffice org 3.2.1) with a start-form. From this start-form I can access all forms and reports via pushbuttons and macros. All the macros are stored inside the database.
Is it possible to open this start-form automatically when I open the database?

I found a few threads about how to do it with a separated writer-form from the desktop. But this is not the way I am looking for. I want all the functionality inside my databsae-file, and not a lot of linking and connecting with forms and datasources.

Thanks for your help and advice

Hello

In this link you can find an example and reasons why you should not do it.

My embeded database is complete and running, everything is inside, forms, reports and macros.
If I want to seperated the forms from the database, as you advise, is there a tutorial or a thread where I can look how to do it? And how to access macros and the existing functionality?

When you open the database, your form is a double-click away. If that double-click is one too many, you should consider another type of database frontend. Base is very, very, very simplistic and completely based on ordinary office documents (embedded Writer). Database connectivity is just a little extra functionality to fill ODF documents or to fill databases using forms on ODF documents.

Yes, there is a tutorial which describes how to get forms out of the Base jail: [Tutorial] Standalone Forms / Switchboard
