I am running LO5.2.2, on a 64bit windows PC and have just update to JRE1.8.0_111. Now, whenever I open my base file, and try to see the tables (via Mysql), I get error message:

"The Connection to the data source "Mysql Bookings" could not be established. The driver class 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver' could not be loaded."

Any clues to what I need to do now?

NB I have just realised the error message came up before updating Java! Could it be related to a Windows Update?

SOLUTION: Class path to Connector J was missing After selecting correct Java Runtime Environment, (tools>options>advanced) click on Class Path, and navigate to correct connector-J 'Jar' file, select it and click ok
