[Solved] Sharing my Base

Postby jjsmith2 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 4:07 am

Hi,
I created a database in OO.o and would like to be able to let my son in another state take it over and use it.
If he has OO.o can he sign in and use my database or do I need to somehow give it to him?
Thanks.
Jim

The simplest solution would be to email the file(s) to him; of course he will need Apache OpenOffice on his computer. Otherwise you need to do slightly more complex things such as using Teamviewer, or if you are both using Windows there is Remote Desktop Protocol. Doubtless there are other options to allow him to connect to your computer - but if he is to take over the management of the database it might as well be local to him.

If you have a single Base file that contains both the database tables and any forms, queries, or reports (this is the default arrangement) you can just email that file to your son. There is no way to "log in to OpenOffice" and access files on other computers or in the cloud. One can share OpenOffice files like any other files but the OpenOffice software does not provide any tools to facilitate the sharing. You have to set it up yourself.
