The best help I can offer is to recommend you don't use Base for
anything mission-critical. It's barely useable, buggy as hell and
it frequently regresses. It hasn't improved much in the last five years,
though at least it can talk to MySQL directly now rather than using the
even less functional ODBC.

You and I must be two of about three people in the world using Base,
because there's no sense of urgency there. I'm doing pretty much all my
database work in PHP now.
