Thanks for the link bretsky. I have V2.0 installed and have never updated as this works well for me but if I update, should I delete my old version first ?

With thanks

Hi there, no, just download the program from the link, and save to desktop then when download has completed, double click the file and follow the on screen prompts.

I have done this for every version update & encountered no problems at all, when install is completed you will go through a series of acceptances etc etc.

I downloaded this version because it promised "Enhanced Access support for Base"

Using 2.0.2 I could open an Access database, see & edit tables and run some queries, but forms, macros and reports wouldn't work.

Now the new enhanced 2.2 simply crashes whenever I try to open a database.

I'm desperately trying to move away from Microsoft Office, and the rest of the OpenOffice suite is fine, but I need to use Access for the databases, now if they could just get Base to work properly I would never need to use MS Office outside of work.
