Mail Merge porblem in OpenOffice


I tried using the Mail Merge wizard in OOo Writer 2.0, but although it would let me choose the right data source (an OOo Base query), it would not allow me to choose fields that actually existed in the query!!!

I have added the appropriate fields to the document using Insert > Fields... How can I now run the Merge? I can't find anything useful in "Help".

Help!
Rob

Sorry! Worked it out...

I clicked on the "Data Source" button on the toolbar, and then the "Mail Merge" button on the "Data Source" toolbar. This opened the Wizard, but allowed me to skip straight to the last step ("Save, Print or Send").
