I developed a simple Base file in LibreOffice Portable v 188.8.131.52 under Win 7 Pro 64bit. I transferred it to another computer running Win XP SP3 32 bit and possibly version 4.1x of LibreOffice Portable. It works there.
I transferred the files to a Linux Mint 17 32bit system (same machine as the Win XP under dual boot). It has LO v 184.108.40.206, which is the latest in the Mint repository. I can load the database. When I click on a form I get an error message that says approximately: " Connection to the external data source could not be established. No SDBC driver was found for hte URL ‘sdbc:embedded:hsqldb’ " The same error occurs when I load a version of the form that was saved as a Writer document. The same error occurs when I try to go the Table section and when I try to open a report, except that the report error starts with "The connection to the data source “database name” could not be established. I have successfully registered the database in the options menu. Its location is shown as /home/myname/Documents/VCJC/ContactLists/databasename.odb
All files related to the database are in the same directory.
In all cases, under Tools>Options>LibreOffice Base>Connections I do not have Connection pooling enabled. Enabling does not change the problem. Below the table of drivers it says the current driver is com.sun.star.comp.sdbc.JDBCDriver Does that have to be changed? The Win 7 system shows com.sun.star.comp.sdbc.ODBCDriver. Selecting that in the Linux system does not help.
I definitely don’t understand what external data source the database is trying to connect to. Any help in understanding what is going on, and especially in fixing it would be great!
