Hello everyone,

I have a mdb and I imported to LibreOffice base. I only see the tables.

Is it possible to import the macros?

Thanks in advance

From a terminology standpoint, you don't actually import an .mdb into LO. The .mdb contains the Access database and you connect Base to that database. The database actually remains in the .mdb file.

Connecting to an Access database, or any other external database, only deals with tables and queries. Macros in the .mdb typically do not work in Base and usually need to be re-written for Base. There is Access2Base available within Base which may help with the transition - click here for documentation.
