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,
Which separator did you use for your FMPro export to CSV ?
Which file extension did you give your "CSV" file ?
If your file doesn't have a CSV extension it won't work.
If your file is TSV instead of CSV, then it won't work either. By
default, I seem to recall that FMPro exports as TSV and not CSV (despite
calling it CSV).
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.
If the file is greyed out, then it is not recognised as a CSV file by
LibreOffice, which means that it either has a problem with its name, the
file extension name or some other kind of structural problem which the
CSV filter in LO is unable to parse.
BTW, if you want to make your mailmerge datasource editable, there are
ways of exporting data and structure from FMPro and using that to create
a LO database file (which will contain editable data sets).
