I'm attempting to convert from Microsoft Office to LibreOffice Base.

What I need to be able to do is to see multiple records at the same time. Typically, I will sort by ascending date so I know who to call first. I illustrate what I need in the attached picture.

Is this possible in BASE?

Alternatively, a query in tabular form would be possible.

+1 for your Q. Now you should be able to post images here directly I think.

Hi Ratsslinger,

Thanks for telling me this. Now I know that BASE probably isn't for me. Glad I found this out before I spend too much time on this.

You will find many differences between Access and Base, this is among them. Out-Of-The-Box, the method to display multiple records in Base is to use a table control. Your attachment is to display each record using field controls. It can be conceivably done with macros but probably requiring a good deal of work. On that note, macros in LO are quite different than with Office. The exception here is that within Base there is a library, Access2Base ( see -> this page) which provides some similarity.
