Managing databases on KDE

NICELY SORTED

Article from Issue 53/2005

Knoda is a user-friendly KDE program that makes database management an intuitive experience. In Part 2 of our workshop, we investigate how to create forms and print reports with Knoda.

Last month you learned how to formulate queries for multiple tables in Knoda. This month, you’ll discover how to create tables, forms, and reports. The workshop assumes you will be working with the Sqlite2 driver, although you should be able to follow the examples with any other database. For example, Box 1 shows you how to configure Knoda to interface with MySQL. Users with Suse Linux 9.1 may need to do some repair work. If you updated KDE to 3.3.2, YaST may have installed some older Knoda packages. In this case, you will need to reinstall Knoda.
