OpenOffice Base is an open source desktop relational database application that is part of the OpenOffice suite of productivity tools offered free on the web by Oracle Corporation. OpenOffice Base is SQL compliant and provides a core database platform, a query tools set, report building module, and forms editor. Each major component in OpenOffice Base provides both novice and expert modes (for example, new users can build a database table using a wizard, and advanced users can jump directly to an advanced table editor). OpenOffice Base also includes macro building tools, and the ability to connect to external database servers (including Access, mySQL, PostgresSQL, and other ODBC sources). Base does not allow for multi-user access or database sharing capabilities.
"Base" is part of the free OpenOffice suite of applications. More information on OpenOffice suite can be found at: http://www.openoffice.org/
