Yes, I have used OO quite a lot. I have indeed tried the database and
in my opinion it is an absolute mess. As I said, I have created many
databases in the past and I think that I understand them quite well. I
have completely failed to get anywhere with Base. Perhaps its me, but
if so it is my very first failure. I have worked with databases of all
sorts in the past, right from the days of DOS. My version of OO is
2.0.4. Anyway, I have completely given up on Base.
