I have just downloaded LibreOffice to be able to use the database application. It asked me to download Java which I did. Overtime I try to use the database program it still asks be to download and states no java installation can be found. Can anyone tell me please what I am doing wrong. I was sure this program would work with an Apple computer but perhaps not.

Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately I have tried this and for some reason it does not work. To be frank I am stuck. Perhaps a good nights rest might help and I will try again tomorrow. Thanks again for trying to help I appreciate it.

I am in the same boat. I need to install Java OSX 2015.01? Can't find it. Am offered 2014, it won't install because a newer version is installed. I forsee needing to spend fifteen minutes swapping Javas each time I need to run Base. Yikes! Has anyone discovered a way through? Thank you!!!

Because LibreOffice offers a database application similar to Access and the fact that you can't run access on a MAC made me think this would be a good solution for me. However the problem with Base and it continuing to ask for Java has made me think again - which would be a pity. Can't anyone help overcome this problem. I have downloaded Java several times now when told the program won't work without it. Surely there must be a solution to this problem. Anyone's help would be much appreciated.

Is there a way to "bump" this, to try to attract someone to answer? JG
