Data Bases can be really helpful. They can be made for personal things, like a CD collection for example, or business, for something like how many cars they have. So now, I'm going to show you how to make a database in Openoffice.Org.

Step 1: Open up Base

Open up Open Office.org (Now referred to by me as OO.org) base and select create new database. Then click finish. It will prompt you to save, so save it and name it what you like.
<p>Keeps telling me that I need to install JRE which I did. Still says needs JRE. I prefer open office but I simply don't have time to mess with things like that right now. None of Java listed anything for win 8.1 (which is also the worst thing to happen to computers) </p>
I would like to connect my open office database with my website, how can I do that , any idea?
How does one display multiple entry fields on the same screen? I want to be able to edit the entire database at one time, rather than scrolling through fields one at a time. It should display something like the entry forms you see on the net, when registering for a new email address, or something like that.
Sorry, I'm not really sure. I'm a little rusty with Base now, but you could probably just play around with the settings. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
Thanks for doing this. I was curious but not curious enough to load OO. It sounds like the OO database is more like Access than Filemaker Pro. Would you agree?
Yeah. It's definitely a lot more like Access
