Hi
I have for long time used BASE as my favorite aplication for a small customer database.
The database is in DBF-format with some names and addresses etc.
In Writer I have a document (order form) with some fixed text and some merging fields.

Normally by pressing PRINT I get a small popup-window telling me:

"Your document contains address database fields. Do you want to print a form letter ?"

If I press YES it looks up in the database(s) and I can select which customer(s) I would like to merge informations from.
Pressing NO just prints the actual order form.

On the pop-up window there is a checkbox saying "don't show this warning again".

I am sure that somebody (maybe me ? Cool ) has marked this, because now I don't get the possibility to choose which customer.

I have checked every single optiion in the system setup and even reinstalled OpenOffice but without result.

Can you help me and direct me where to look I would be grateful !

Best regards

Torben, IcePhil Services

This macro will reactivate the 'form letter' query.
