zip-Container with database and text document

I have a text document, which contains database fields. One of them is 'Record number'. When I print it, AOO ask whether I want to print a form letter. Answer yes. In the dialog choose to print all records to file in one single document.
Open this document. Notice that the 'Record number' field is empty.

That has worked in OOo2.4.3 and is already broken in OOo3.4.1 and still broken in AOO400m1(Build:9700)  -  Rev. 1478648

I checked your text document, field is displaying as "Recordnummer". I think this might be the reason Record Number field is empty.
Comment 2 Regina Henschel 2013-05-08 22:03:34 UTC
When you enable 'Field Names' in menu 'View', you can see, that the field name is correct. "Recordnummer" is only text to indicate, where the field content should be seen.
When you test it, you have to reload the database with Edit > Exchange Database. Use OOo2.4.3 to see how it should work.

In the tests done for bug 124597 the value was not empty but "1"

The last feature version, working correctly, I used, is the one of OOo 3.3.0
