I am running OpenOffice on a MacBook Air with the above versions of software and using Java 8 Update 40 Build 1.80-40-b26.  When I try to open a new or existing database, I get the following screen:

To open “soffice” you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime.
Click “More Info…” to visit the legacy Java SE 6 download website.

When I click on More Info, I get the following screen:

Java for OS X 2014-001


Java for OS X 2014-001 includes installation improvements, and supersedes all previous versions of Java for OS X. This package installs the same version of Java 6 included in Java for OS X 2013-005.

Please quit any Java applications before installing this update.

See  for more details about this update.

See for information about the security content of this update.

Keep your software up to date. If you need Java, download the latest version of Java for OS X directly from Oracle

After reading the support notes, verifying from Oracle that my version of Java is the most current, and attempting to open a database, the same failure occurs, and the app closes automatically.

Please help.
