So now do I follow all the steps from the previous posts to completely remove OpenOffice again and try installing 4.0 to see if it works?
Thanks for all your help. Steve Kotsiris
Have you tried creating a new database to see if it is the one you've already created that's causing the problem?

Yes I did, I created a quick database and as soon as I try to do anything with a form it crashes. Even when creating the form it would crash before I was able to get it saved, then I let it open up and just clicked the X to close it and finally got it saved as a form. But still as soon as I open that form and click anywhere on it, it crashes. Only on forms, I can do everything else in the database, fill in tables, run reports and queries with on issues. Forms....Crash.
I seen a post that someone left about a Kernel update that doesn't play nice with Java Orical which I'm using. But I'm not sure if I have that update or if it even applies to my situation.
Thanks Steve Kotsiris

Ok, thanks. Yes, you will have to remove OpenOffice as before. You could try installing the older version of OpenOffice but if I were you I would give LibreOffice a shot. The two programs should be compatible enough that your database works in LibreOffice but backup the database files first just in case.

I would if it wasn't for an Oricale Report tool that I used for all my reports from OpenOffice. I hate to have to reproduce them all over again. I tried using it first before removing LibreOffice for OpenOffice and I was getting errors trying to ran my reports.
I think I'll try to do a complete removal again and install 4.0 and see if it works. I still have a feeling a Linux update may have something to do with my issue. All I can do it try it and see what happens.
Thanks again for all your help Hydrurga

It even crashes with 4.0 now. There had to be an update from Linux that it just doesn't like.
