Very deliberate instruction by TheFrugalComputerGuy in use of Open Office / LibreOffice to create a database. This is the first in the series. My advice (hard won) is to follow the lessons exactly without trying to rename fields or change too much of Anything, until it "clicks" and you are ready to build your very own.
LibreOffice is the power-packed free, libre and open source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and GNU/Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers. You, too, can get involved!
