I use MS Access all the time but this is my first time trying ooBase

I cannot figure out how to link (not just a 1 time import) .csv files into Base.

When creating a new database, i can go to "connect to existing.." and then select text. But this does not help me as I cannot create new tables in this view.

Can you link an .csv or text files to Base and still be able to create other tables? I heard it is possible using SQL but I have no idea...

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm pretty desperate here...

Thanks!!!
