¿Qué ye Access2Base?

Access2Base is a LibreOffice BASIC library of macros for (business or personal) application developers and advanced users. It is one of the libraries stored in "Application macros and dialogs".

The functionalities provided by the implemented macros are all directly inspired by Microsoft Access. The macros are callable mainly from a LibreOffice Base application, but also from any LibreOffice document (Writer, Calc, ...) where access to data stored in a database makes sense.

La API qu'ufre Access2Base tien l'envís ser más concisa, intuitiva y fácil d'aprender que la API UNO estándar (API = Interfaz de programación d'aplicaciones, poles sigles n'inglés).
