How Can I Un-Register a Data Source?

Running Libre Office 4.4.5.2 under Windows 10.

I have been experimenting with printing labels. I am following the helpful step-by-step advice at http://www.marbitz.com/portfolio/print_labels.pdf, using Writer and taking data stored in a Calc spreadsheet.

I have certainly been successful in printing labels, but each time I have been through the process I seem to have generated a new linkage of some kind; I see a large and increasing number of 'Address Book Sources' all with slightly different names.

This is not at all what I intended, and I am sure it is unnecessary. It seems quite likely that I have followed the steps slavishly without fully understanding what I am doing, and I would like to 'clean up' my PC and start again. I am guessing that these 'Address Book Sources' do not exist as separate files, they are merely linkages recorded internally somewhere in Libre Office. How do I get rid of previously created linkages, but of course without deleting my spreadsheet data?
