Description robotii 2006-02-02 20:59:50 UTC
I received a mailmerged document from an MS-Word user. However when I open it in
Word I can see the fields values as expected. In Writer I see the name of the
field displayed rather than its value.

I can upload the document, or email it if necessary, but as the information is
private I would expect confidentiality.

Known problem, see issue 30950. Don't feel confused by the summary of that
issue; in the end it is about the whole mailmerge compatibility between Word and
OO Writer.
