Databases or Data sources are everywhere on the web. They are fields or collection of individual pieces of information stored in a computer system. Nitro Office is an effective application primarily involves with database creation and management. The stored data in the system is accessible in a wide range of database file formats. Even an average office suite user can enter, access, and analyze the data easily and promptly.
Now you may think why I need a database system like Nitro Office Base. If you are a professional involved in the bulk business, you might understand the relevance of a database system. If you can build numerical tables and store data in Calc, Nitro Office Base is much stronger at handling a large amount of data comprising non-numerical. You need to sort and analyze the data and a database system like Base empowers you for that.
The best way to understand the database is to consider it as a collection of lists known as “tables”. That is Database Management Systems including Nitro Office Base store data in the form of tables. Each table is a group of fields with detailed information about Database Integration.
Creating a New Database
To create a new database, follow the command File> New> Database from the menu bar, which opens to a Database Wizard. You can also do this by clicking the arrow next to the New Icon on the Standard Toolbar and choose Database.

It is necessary to save the whole database regularly. For instance, you must save the table you are creating before you can close it.
Database Table Creation
Tables in a database can be an address book, a phone book, a stock list, or even a price list. They are information stored in a database. To create Tables, either click the table icon in the Database list or press Alt+A.
There are two categories of tables: business and personal. Each has sample tables with a list of available fields. You can also create tables in design view and even by copying an existing table. Once a table has been created and data has been entered, editing is will have boundaries. If you delete a field, all the data saved in that field.
In a document, the bibliography refers to the list of references. A user can store it either in a bibliographic database or within the document itself. However, the bibliographic database is the most effective one since it allows reuse in other documents.
The bibliography database comprises so many fields as it has to cover various media and circumstances. To open the bibliography database window click Tools> Bibliography Database. In the pop-up page, the upper part depicts all the records and the lower part depicts all the fields of the selected records.
How to filter records?
