[Solved] Forms questions...

Postby jmjaneiro » Mon Aug 29, 2016 4:59 pm

Hi all,

I'm a newbie to database software, but now I need to solve a problem and I think this is the right tool for the job. Because I'm not 100% sure I would like confirmation for someone with more experience than me in order not to loose time if this can't be done in Base.
I have to create 4 different types of forms which I would like to link to an initial form. Being more specific, I wanted to created a form with 4 options and each option would open a different type of form that I could then save in a database.
Is Base the right tool for this?

Thanks in advance

João

Hello

OOo-base is maybe the good tool for you. I think you must not store your forms in your databasedocument but as standalone forms. Form documents are normal writer documents. You can also make forms in a spreadsheet

You can make easy hyperlinks to other form documents not stored in a databasedocument. You can also make easy hyperlinks to other sheets when you use a spreadsheet.
