Alternatives to using forms in Writer

In version 1.x, forms were the only way to access a data source. In version 2.0 the Base component provides an alternative way of achieving this. There are a lot of similarities between forms in Base and Writer, but it may be that one is better for a particular task than the other. Base is appropriate only if the form accesses a data source; you would not use it for simple forms.

OOo2.0 now includes Base—the database component. You can create databases and forms in Base.

Most other components—Calc, Impress and Draw—also support forms in almost exactly the same way as Writer does.
