I create a simple mail merge, print my letters, save and exit.
I go back into the same letter and try to re-print the same batch but I get the error “the connection to the data sources XXXX cannot be established”. To work-around this issue, I must re-connect all fields from the same table into the respective fields in the same Writer document.
This isn’t just one document I have the problem with - it’s every single mail merge I’ve created. I never exit(ed) a document before getting my letters perfectly printed the first time because I knew I would lose my field mappings.
I see the issue was brought up in a similar form in this thread: link text
I speak in past-tense in the previous paragraphs because I’ve had to switch to OpenOffice until this issue is resolved in LibreOffice. I know OpenOffice is a deprecated code stream, but it works in my workflow. I’d like to switch back - does anyone know the solution?
LibreOffice (latest Linux Deb/Ubuntu version)
