After using the word processing component of OO for some time without
issue, I'm now re-trying to use the DATABASE component. Although I now
have Sierra on my Macbook, this function has never worked on other OS
After saving my new database file on the desk top I get this message which
I don't understand at all:
"Open Office requires a JAVA runtime envionment (JRE) to run this task. The
selected JRE is defective. Please select another version or install a new
JRE and select it under TOOLS - OPTIONS - OPEN OFFICE - JAVA."
There are no OPTIONS under TOOLS on the top menu of OO.
I have installed the latest JAVA (update 101).
I'd be grateful to anyone who can help me get the database function working
or, perhaps, direct me to another free or cheap database software for Mac
