NeoOffice Base allows you to either connect to an external database (MySQL, dBase, Calc, etc.) or to create an "embedded database" using the included HSQL database engine. In addition to entering and editing data, you can create Queries, Views, and Forms, as well as access any registered datasource in Writer and Calc documents.
