I had a working base application using MySQL (JDBC) connection type. I tried switching to a JDBC connection type to add SSL security as described here .

The connection is ok, all tables, views and Base queries work fine as well as the Forms without sub forms.

When opening any of my forms containing a sub form, I get the following error message:

SQL Status: S1009

Parameter index out of range (1 > number of parameters, which is 0).

It seems to match the problem described in this Stack Overflow post . It is the basic error that happens in every code language I played around with when you have a string with placeholders, and do not pass it a matching number of parameters.

My forms are linked to their sub forms using the LO Base Link Master/Slave fields GUI settings, no macro is involved in that process.

My question is : Is there something I can do to fix it, Is it a Lo Base JDBC limitation/bug?

Basically should I give up on ssl encryption?

I am adding this comment, because after testing out, I found that there is no link to the ssl parameters. My JDBC connection is not working. I removed ssl encryption from the server, and the jdbc connection string parameters, the problem remains the same.

It is apparently an old bug as documented here. I am finding a lot of posts, but no working solutions; MySQL analyse yes/no in subforms settings do not change anything, And tweaks to database advanced properties were unsuccessful so far.

The solution I have found here seems to be working well.

Edit > Database > Advanced Settings > Replace named parameters with '?' (Checked)

Important: you need to close the Base document and reopen it for changes to take effect.

I do not see the setting in Edit > Advanced Settings ; I am running LO and I see 5 other settings (in the Special Settings tab, which is the only tab), not the "Replace named parameters with '?'". Please advise.
