howard,
Glad to see you were successful. I note that on a single user Windows machine and 1.1.5 there is more in the OOo.org directory than just the "user" directory. I haven't seen more in it for v2 but still I think all that needs to be removed is the "user" folder just in case something ends up putting other files, etc. in the OOo.org directory.

Most people reporting problems of this type seem to be using Windows XP and I know one other person was using the Home version. I don't specifically know that any were usinig the Pro version.

Yes, it was a user account on XP home that was giving trouble. The OOo2.0 folder in my "application data" only has one immediate sub-folder - "user"; there's also a file with the name ".lock". So deleting the whole thing isn't much different from deleting user.

JohnV,

In reply to your difficulty in finding "Ask for Merge" in Writer.xcu, as a means of undoing a "Don't ask me again" selection, here's a snippet from Writer.xcu:

<node oor:name="PrintOutput">
<prop oor:name="AskForMerge" oor:type="xs:boolean">
<value>true</value>
</prop>
</node>

The "true" had been marked "false" when I checked the "don't ask me again" box.

Keep in mind that I don't think this particular setting is the cure for the exact issue you guys have been discussing. This one restores the option to select lines from a database for mail merging simply by clicking the Print icon -- a really nice feature.

But I suspect that this .xcu file is where all the Writer settings can be fixed to undo those unwise "don't ask me again" choices. Searching in the file for critical keywords (in my case, "merge" and "print") should enable one to find any setting of interest. That, or I just got really lucky!

Sparky and others,

Fernand has now posted a macro to recover the "Form Letter" query.
