I'm using Base in LibreOffice, a fresh install. I have a table with 216 records that I'm creating a handful of Queries for. Upon editing the query and closing the window, Base crashes nearly 85% of the time. I've tried saving the query, not saving the query, saving the entire database as a whole prior to closing the window, nothing seems to prevent the program from crashing unexpectedly due to an unknown error.

For a while it wasn't a big deal, the auto recovery was annoying and time consuming to constantly have to effectively close and reopen the program, however the last time this happened the auto-recovery was "interrupted" and I've managed to lose a bunch of my work.

Any thoughts, ideas, tips?

What's your OS and OS version? Have you found anything relevant in the Base BUG REPORTS?

I can only agree above suggestion. Split! I have a win pc, just installed lo to & I use the mysql database from USBwebserver v8 ( & the extension Native Mysql connector 1.02. You can use lo base to create-edit tables & relationships or use phpadmin.

Strongly suggest you SPLIT your database.

There is a tutorial about on how to do it in easy stages here. and there is also a wizard to help.

In my experience, of using BASE to develop a large application over 6-9 months, this one action significantly reduces the very annoying crash-almost-every-time.

Somewhere, I forget where, I read a technical explanation of why the crashing occurs. From memory, and I could be wrong, it's to do with having the database in-core along with everything else of LO.

It has to do with the compressing and uncompressing the Base file when opening and closing it.
