When i try to use database field 'Any record' (menu Insert-Fields-Other, Database tab) in my Writer document it is not working properly. Due to help "Only records selected by a multiple selection in the data source view are considered". In fact it considered totally all records from dataset. Record number of first record in dataset is 2, second is 3, and so on.

Could you explain what you expect? What kind of data source are you using?

See my comment 11 in your bug report, where you can work around the bug by dragging and dropping the field headers from the datasource browser onto your Writer document.

It seems to me that I was not able to bring to you the problem. So I publish screencast there

The bug is confirmed as far as I'm concerned, which is why status is set to NEW
