I've spent several hours going around in circles trying to get mail merge
setup and running in LibreOffice. It was working fine in OpenOffice, but OO
starting crashing and is currently unusable on my Mac.

Using the "Address Data Source" wizard, I can not get everything in place. I
have a data document that is exported from Filemaker Pro, I tried "tab" and
"csv" both. Is there a correct file type that I should use? Here are the
steps that I am taking,

Address book type - "other external data source"

Connection Settings - I click on "Settings"

Database type - I select "Text" from the drop down menu

Path to the text files - I browse to the file that Filemaker exported, but
it is greyed out. I can only select the folder that contains the exported
csv or tab file.

I can then specify the type of file, and the field separator, etc., but the
actual file never gets selected.

I would appreciate any help with this, after several hours trying every
combination I could come up with, I'm at a lost.
