I'm sorry for the omission, it was quite late when I posted and I was worn
out. I am using *LO* on my MacBook Pro with *OS 10.6.8*.

I was using the guide "Writer Guide: Full book", "3.4.x branch ", beginning
at about page 301.

Have you opened the file you exported from Filemaker using a text editor? This should tell you what the structure is and what separators you need to use. When the wizard asks what the file to use, it only wants to know what folder contains the file. It will then open all the text files in that folder. This is why any text data sources should have their separate folder. As Alex mentioned, you should also look at the file's extension. If the file has the correct structure, renaming the file extension to .csv might help.
