LibreOffice Base is a free and open-sourcerelational database management system that is part of the LibreOfficeoffice suite. LibreOffice Base was built off of a fork of OpenOffice.org and was first released as version 3.4.0.1 on October 4, 2011.[4]

Similarly to the other packages in the LibreOffice suite, Base is supported across multiple platforms including Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux. Base is recognized for its cross-platform compatibility relative to Microsoft Access, which is developed exclusively for Windows.[5]

Features[edit]

LibreOffice Base is designed to allow users to easily create, access, modify, and view databases and their data. This is done by providing users with a graphical user interface that allows users to work with four main tools: Tables, queries, forms, and reports.[6][7] Base includes software wizards to assist users with various aspects of the program.[8][9] LibreOffice Base requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in order to create databases with forms, wizards, and more.[10]

May 05, 2020 LibreOffice does have greater functionality when it comes to saving in Microsoft Office file formats, but that can be worked around using older file formats in OpenOffice. The bottom line is that, since both are free to use, you can't go wrong. Search the world's information, including webpages, images, videos and more. Google has many special features to help you find exactly what you're looking for.

Base is able to work with both embedded and external database files. Embedded databases are stored as a single file using C++ based Firebird and Java-based HSQLDB as its storage engine. When connecting to external databases, Base acts as a graphical user interface front-end to facilitate interactions with various database systems including Microsoft Access databases (JET), ODBC/JDBC data sources, MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL.[7]

Base has been described as an unusual project in the niche of database management system software which tends toward proprietary software designed for enterprise users.[6] Proprietary database management software costs have been described as a reason for the use of Base in small businesses.[11]

Migration From HSQLDB to Firebird[edit]

Work was started in 2014 to transition the embedded storage engine from HSQLDB to the Firebird SQL back-end. Firebird has been included in LibreOffice as an experimental option since LibreOffice 4.2.[12][13]

In August 2018, The Document Foundation announced the release of LibreOffice version 6.1. If the experimental mode is used, the embedded Firebird engine support is fully available, and the old HSQLDB engine is deprecated—although still available—and replaced by Firebird as the default option.[14][15]

In February 2019, The Document Foundation released LibreOffice version 6.2. The embedded Firebird engine support was moved from experimental mode to operational and the Firebird Migration Assistant can create a backup copy of content as an XML document for the migration process.[16] In February 2020, embedded Firebird was moved back to experimental mode, taking effect in version 6.4.1.[17]

Older versions of LibreOffice

It's not uncommon for the latest version of an app to cause problems when installed on older smartphones. Sometimes newer versions of apps may not work with your device due to system incompatibilities. Until the app developer has fixed the problem, try using an older version of the app. If you need a rollback of LibreOffice, check out the app's version history on Uptodown. It includes all the file versions available to download off Uptodown for that app. Download rollbacks of LibreOffice for Windows. Any version of LibreOffice distributed on Uptodown is completely virus-free and free to download at no cost.
