My background is 30 years in the Computer Business - Training,
installations, support etc etc.
Since retiring I left Windows behind and changed to Linux.
What I'm not is a Programmer - except with BASIC about 20 years ago!!!

Hi Alexander and all:
Thank you for your clear explanation. If I understood you well, this
happen when we predefined the table in Base that we think that we will
need. But when I have needed do it, I didn't make the table, I only use
connect option (when start BASE), with a .db

You could plausibly also design your form from the ground up using a
Calc sheet, inserting form controls onto it, and linking that form to

Hi Ian and all:
Excuse me if I understood bad your problem.
I understood that you need import a .CSV file to BASE with BASE. And

I suggest to you to open the .CSV file with CALC. Then save it as .ODS.
Finally, import from BASE the .ODS file.

I think what you are wanting to discover is how to open your Form - the .odt
One possibility would be to right click on the .odt file, then choose Send
to | Desktop (create shortcut).
After that, simply clicking on the shortcut on the Desktop will open the .
odt file. No doubt to
