Good show! I shall be looking for more of iur tutorials.

In general. I love the low-key delivery, a relief from the hype that we swim daily.

# 2 Was helpful. Before watching, I thought I was losing the categories from new, saved tables. When I closed and reopened them they were blank. The video showed that the tables tend to open with the categories scrolled out of sight to the left, so they are there but can't be seen.

Thanks for a good lesson in database for a newbee :-)

Easy to follow - thanks

very useful.

Direct and to the point

danke, gute arbeit.

Good videos I'm new at base and this is helpful

Glad to see a how-to on Open Office. It's much easier to watch someone do it, than to search through the help files.

so far, so good 2

Thanks for the videos. I am an experienced Access database developer. I have already learned from your video once you save the table definition, you can not insert a new field in between existing fields. This drove me nuts when I was creating an OpenOffice database, now I know.

Great Tutorials. I can't wait to watch the rest of them. I've been trying to figure out how to use Base on my own. Not easy.

thank you so much very good work

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
