Yes, it's the only bit of Base I use that does need Java. It works
poorly at best, and it just stopped for a while. No bits missing, as
far as I could see, bearing in mind that I run sid, but no dice.

I fired up my wife's computer and used Access to get the job done
immediately, but I've been trying to leave Access for ten years or
more, so I had a go with fpdf with php, and can now produce my most
important reports (i.e. invoices) if Base goes walkabout again.
