I created a DB with an Wrter doc which used fields from the DB to print reports. When I moved both files to a new PC, the Writer doc crashes when I try to open it. No clue how to fix this. Thanks.

Maybe is needed to register the DB in LO in the new computer. Menu/Tools/LibreOffice Base/Databases

Thanks, marios. I tried your suggestion but no luck. Both files were created in the same folder on the original computer, and also reside together on the new computer. One difference between computers is that my User folder is different. Maybe it is a path problem, but there's no option to reset.

Just to follow-up - it works today! I don't know why or how, but the doc opened without a crash. I didn't do anything different today.
