I want to work with a filter of a registered database.
I created the document with fields from the database, applied a filter. Then, no matter what I do, the merge is with the entire database, not the filtered list.
As usual, the Help document is of utterly no help.

By "setting up a filter" I suppose you mean you did save a query, right? If so, connect the letter to the query instead of the database and you will have what you want. You can do this via Edit-> Exchange Database

Hope this helps

you can use the old Mail Merge that was available in v1.1 if you want...

I've posted a reply at http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?p=88637#88637 which shows how to enable it in v2.
