Can I move a .odb file (Firebird embedded) between PCs?

Have set up a new base database on Windows, pulling data from an Access database by exports and imports. It appears to work fine but was surprised how small the .odb file was. My intention was to copy that .odb file onto my Linux machine and open using the same version of LibreOffice on Ubuntu. The file opens but it cannot connect to any of the other tables. I has assumed using an embedded firebird then the data would all be within the .odb file but am clearly wrong! Ultimately I want to run the database on Linux as part of a general move away from Windows and Microsoft Office. Any thoughts as to what I have missed would be most appreciated. Thanks. Malcolm
