Thanks, Paul.

However, my question has been answered by Andrew yesterday. Unfortunately I 
did not change the subject line, so I'm doing it now for clarification.

If you are looking to have more than one record on a page, look into the
<next record> command
Writer automatically assumes next record = next page when merging.

Adding <next record> after last field entered, begins repeat of fields
on same page.

 From menu <Insert><fields><other>, select "next record".

Suppose you have a set of fields.  F1, F2 and F3 in a table.  Add F1, F2
and F3 on every table row.
At the end of each row in the table, add <next record>  field after F3.

Hope this helps

when producing MailMerge text documents, semi-automatic Page Breaks are
inserted which can only be removed manually one by one, but not "all
together" by e.g. selecting the whole document (Ctrl+A) and removing
Page Breaks in the Format Paragraph dialog.

XML shows that paragraphs with page breaks are different from paragraphs
without page breaks, they bear the name "P4":

<text:p text:style-name="P4"...

In the automatic styles section, P4 has the following property:

<style:style style:name="P4" ...

       <style:paragraph-properties style:page-number="1"/>...

which - I suppose - is responsible for the page break before this

- Can anybody tell me, why in these "automatic" type styles the page
break cannot be removed with Strg+A but only one by one?
- Can anybody give me a hint how to write a Macro which removes those
page breaks? (If it's possible at all - in Spreadsheets there seems to
be a function which does a similar job[1], but the described problem
might need a bit more sophisticated proceeding).
