Hi all

I have used an OOo Base database using ODBC for FoxPro for DOS 2.5 tables (can't use the inbuilt bBase connection, see my other thread).

Now when I use these fields in the mail merge Writer doc, the merge happens alright but say the City fields has a lot of white space trailing the name of the city, this is very obvious as I use Underline for the city plus it is followed by the Pincode (zip code) field. So City and Pincode is separated by lots of underlined white space.

Please advise on how this could be avoided. This is not a problem when I use ThunderBird address book fields.

Kind regards.
