Hello again and happy new - covid free - year !
I’ve read carefully your remarks. I’m a newcomer in LO. I had worked with MS Access before, almost 20 years and a little bit with Open Office. Now I must have a database and it’s like to start all over again. And I think that you can make the best start with the tutorial. Firstly, I installed LO version 188.8.131.52. The only step I didn’t follow is that I choose embedded Firebird because I read that HSQLDB is out of date and it will be replaced in the future. I followed step by step (apart from the aforementioned choice) the ’Libre Office, Getting started guide, Chapter 8, Getting started with Base’, I created a new database (called Automobile), I followed Step 1: select fields (I used the CD collection sample table in the personal category and Employees in the business category), then Step 2: Set field types and formats, then Step 3: Set primary key and when I followed Step 4: Create table (page 11) and clicked Finish there was the following ERROR displayed:
firebird_sdbc error: *Dynamic SQL Error *SQL error code = -104 *Name longer than database column size caused by ‘isc_dsql_prepare’
I thing that I gave all the details of the procedure. This is the point where I need some help.
