Description hawstom 2006-04-14 21:09:04 UTC
On selecting Print when merge fields present, Writer presents a warning box
"Fields present. Do merge?" with a checkbox "Don't show warning again." If user
elects not to see warning anymore, the following record selection box doesn't
show. And user must edit Writer.cxu deep in the OOo registry file structure to

Otherwise stated from my web site:
If you accidentally (or understandably or experimentally) check the Don't Show
this Warning Again box when tells you before printing that there
are fields in the document and do you want to do a merge, you are in trouble.
Now won't show you the record selection box anymore.

Here's the fix that worked for me. In my 2.0.2 for XP, here is what I had to edit:

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application

<node oor:name="printOutput"> <prop oor:name="AskForMerge?"
oor:type="xs:boolean"> <value>false</value> </prop> </node>

Change false to true.

Close OpenOffice? including the Quickstarter. Make sure it is closed. If you
aren't sure, restart the computer.

Requested action:  Unlink the record seletion form from the Fields present warning.

See the forums under merge box or mail merge box.
