Chapter 8. Working with Lists and Databa... > Understanding Calc Database Design

Understanding Calc Database Design

Your Calc databases will not look much different from your other spreadsheet files. In fact, Calc spreadsheet databases are called flat file databases because they consist of a single, large table of data. Relational databases like StarOffice Base allow you to place the data in smaller related tables (hence the name relational), which actually allows for greater manipulation of the data.

Note

If you find that Calc isn't doing all the “database things” that you need it to do, you can import your Calc databases into Base. This is discussed later in the chapter.
