Writer form to Base conversion

Because Base won't work in Mac OSX until Java is updated, I started making a form using Writer. I eventually switched from OSX and have nearly finished the form in Ubuntu with a hundred plus named fields and correct tabs. odt file here

I imagine this form as a pdf document that users will fill out and auto save with the date and the room number that was inspected. Another version would capture the data and send it to an external database.

Of course, Base works in the Linux version of LibreOffice 5.2. Should I convert this to a Base-based form at this point to get these future features? ...and is there a simple way to do this without typing everything out again?
