I created a database but when I go to create a table, I get the following error:

SQL Status: HY000

The connection to the external data source could not be established. No SDBC driver was found for the URL 'sdbc:embedded:hsqldb'.

Will someone please help me? I am using a Mac with High Sierra and everything is updated to the latest versions. Or so it seems.

You must install Java JDK from Oracle and check it is installed correctly in LibreOffice->Preferences under Libreoffice->Advanced

If you need further help on installing, see answer in this post -> Mac Java problem when creating a database

I installed the JDK and JRE but when I go to Preferences->Advanced, the Java section is grayed out. I even restarted LibreOffice.
