Description Unknown 2003-09-25 16:41:17 UTC
The mail merge dialog is unable to add a merge field without a database attached. For example, my business uses Salesforce.com, where I can insert merge fields such as Contact_FullName and Account_Industry into a form letter and then upload the document. Right now, however, there is no way to insert these fields into an open office doc because I cannot directly open the Salesforce database. In any case, once the document is uploaded, the database path wouldn't be correct because the salesforce servers are expecting an MS Word-style merge field. There is no reason it should not be possible to add a merge field without the associated database attached.

I can confirm the behavior, but this might be marked as an RFE.

In current OpenOffice needs an belonging database. Set to Enhancement.
