By the end of this project you will have used LibreOffice Base to create a relational database table and populate it with rows of data. Base provides features that allow you to work with databases using wizards that lead you through the processes step-by-step. It also provides methods of working with database components directly, giving you the additional measure of control and flexibility you need to create a custom-designed database. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
