Calculated fields in ooBase queries

Asked by daeroncs

I can't find any method of creating a calculated field in a query in ooBase. I've got a table with two fields in it that I want to concatenate for a combo box lookup list on a form. It seems that the combo box can only display 1 field in its list. This is easy to do in MS Access.

I agree. I also wonder if it would be possible to close this ticket as it does not appear to be possible and that, in itself, is an answer.

I still had to install oOovirg to solve the problem. I did it as an administrator of course and now I have superb commas in Calc... but also in Write and everywhere on

Can you help with this problem?
