Base is a full featured desktop database management system designed to meet the needs of a broad array of users, whether those needs be:

  • Producing the monthly departmental sales report.
  • Or tracking your personal CD collection.

Base offers wizards to help users, new to database design or just new to Base, create Tables, Queries, Forms and Reports, along with a set of predefined table definitions for tracking Assets, Customers, Sales Orders, Invoices and much more.

When a personal use database is all you need Base offers the full HSQL relational database engine, configured for single user, with the data stored right in the Base file, as well as native support for dBase flat files.

In the workplace Base delivers native support drivers for a variety of multi-user database engines, MySQL, Adabas D, MS Access and PostgreSQL. Support for JDBC and ODBC standard drivers allows you to connect to virtually any existing database.

Base integrates seamlessly into the rest of the suite applications:

  • Supplying address book data for mail merge in Writer using the industry standard LDAP protocol or common address book formats such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Windows and Mozilla .
  • Create linked data ranges in Calc files for date pilot analysis or as the basis for charts.
