    This app is straight forward and allows you to get a task done immediately. What it lacks in import export power this app makes up for in pure function.

    LiveCode is nothing like Access. You still have to code everything yourself, no wizards, no easy report builder, no automatic data-binding to controls... The list goes on and on. This is a programming application, not an end-user application. Completely different.

    Libre Office is far more complicated than Filemaker to use; much more like Access. At present, in our universe, Filemaker corners the market as the only highly-powerful-yet-easy-to-use database. Provue's Panorama is the only other contender in the Filemaker Pro arena.

    LibreOffice - Base is a database application, comparable to MS Access. Filemaker is not that kind of software. It's a collection management software.
