Herr Säger, you may have hit the nail on the head, thank you.
Yes, even though my query was correctly displayed as the driving data
for the document (of course, since I'm using mailmerge, this is a
Writer document that has the problem), when I went through the
"Change datasource" dialogue/wizard, it showed a different database
as the source, weird!
And that is a *fabulous* feature in Writer, just dragging the column
onto the page, fabulous.
However, there was still one problem remaining which I have fixed by
changing the field name "Company" to "Co".
Whether I allowed MySQL to produce the fieldname or explicitly
speciifed it with an alias, Base would insert the field as "company"
(lowercase first letter), and it would therefore display the
fieldname not the field contents, because the query wasn't producing
a field with that name! "Company" is a reserved word somehow?
One small step for mankind...
