5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Book
I cannot pretend to have read or understood hte whole content of this book yet, but it is a very comprehensive guide to Database Programming. I would not use OpenOffice Base without it to hand. The Author is respected in the Base community as a contributor to projects and extensions. There is on-line access to some content to save re-typing.

If you are...

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to get into
I'm trying to move away from MS Access due to its cost. Databases never seem to fit easily within 'office' type products. I was looking for more information than the Base guide has and this seems to be the only book.

I'm left with the feeling that "I'm sure the content is good" but I find the book difficult to get into.

If you are serious about Datablase, then this is a good book for reference to programming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Database Programming with ooo base, 16 Dec 2012
This review is from: Database Programming with OpenOffice.org Base & Basic (Paperback)
An excellent book - as an experienced VBA programmer with MS Access it provided what I needed to get going in Open Office Base. Heavy going at timesMay prove too much for someone with no programming background but good nevertheless.
