Apparently I cannot save database properties for controls on a database form
written in Writer. 

+ I've created a document in Writer, populated it with controls (text boxes and
check boxes).
+ I' ve created a database in Base, and used Edit > Exchange Databases > Select
> Define to identify the database to Write,.
+ I then use Design Mode ON with the form properties box to assign a table in
the database to the form.
+ Finally, for each control I use use Design Mode ON with the control
properties box to assign a field in the table in the database to the control.

I can now navigated the database table and its fields, edit entries, show each
record in the form, etc. Everything works as expected (based on prior MS Access
experience). All good.

+ So I save the form, close down, and reload the form. Poof! Gone! The form has
not retained its database table assignment. None of the controls have retained
their database table field assignments. None of the other database properties
(NULL, Input Required) have been saved and some of the General properties (Tab
Stop, Tab Order) have been lost.
