Database Programming with OpenOffice.org Base & Basic
Ships in 3-5 business days
OpenOffice.org has been gaining popularity over the years, and with the introduction of the database module (Base) in release 2.0, there has been more to learn. When working with databases, you will come to a point where the basic features are not sufficient. Databases have a large range of uses, and therefore, there is always a need for customization.
This book will teach you how to write code in the BASIC language (also known as StarOffice Basic/OpenOffice.org Basic or just plain Basic) to enhance the features of OpenOffice.org Base. After reading this book, you will know how to: use UNO services to query, insert, update, and delete records in a database; use forms, sub-forms and form controls to manipulate data; use form and form control events; programmatically import and export data; and much more.
You will also have an overall understanding of the database API, so that you can create custom solutions.
