I have a csv file (name;address;nbr_of_days;price_per_day).

I want to mailmerge this into a Calc document. In that calc document I have a simple formula in cell B1 = A1 * A2. Now I want to create several files : one for each record in the csv (that I already have put in an odb). The value of nbr_of_days should go into cell A1, and will be used in the calculation for B1.

Currently, when I drop a field (after pressing F4) from the ODB to my spreadsheet, I get a Text Editbox. But instead I want that value to go into cell A1, so it gets used in the calculation. Used to create basic invoices from csv, but with possibility to add stuff before printing.

Hi padut,
I think without develop a macro program you ca not do it in calc, mail merge is for run in writer.
But you can import the csv values in calc Menu/Insert/sheet or sheet from file. do the calculation you need in calc and use calc (after register as database) as source of the mail merge in writer.

I think this extension can help, to an easy use the spreadsheet as mail merge source.
