Hi, I'm using Libreoffice 6 on Ubuntu. I've created a writer office and attached a database with 99 records. When try to print the document it goes far beyond 99 records... I'm at 3215 and counting now. The progress bar says "3215 of 50"

Any ideas? Wayne

Hello,

I have LO v6.0.2.1 on Mint 18.3 and don't see any problem. Using a three page document and a 13 record DB table under mail merge with all 13 records the result is 39 total pages - 3 for each record. With only three DB records selected the result is 9 pages. The output should be (if you selected all 99 records to be merged) 99 times the total number of pages in your document.

I deleted the document and started again... I must have had some conditional merge code messing it up. thanks
