This mailmerge is linked to a query in a MySQL database.

My query couldn't use the query wizard (Andreas won't be surprised).
In coding the query I wrote the field names in camelcase (eg
"Address1", "PersonName"), the actual database fields are all in
lowercase.  Changing this made the mailmerge show data.
However, the query worked prior to that, and in fact the hidden
paragraph conditions worked correctly, even though they were also in

Interestingly, calculated fields given camelcase names with "AS"
work!  Uncalculated fields given names (eg `Address1` AS `Address1`)

Interestingly, again, it seems that some conditional statements don't
work the way they used to, either.

Am I talking complete rubbish here, or are others finding similar

One small step for mankind...
A few questions: If you are using the Fedora repo, might the problem be with the that (probably not)? Have you tried using a View instead of a Query? Could you provide us with the SQL statement used to create the query? This would make creating a database to test the problem much easier for us. I don't know if this has anything to do with anything: from the definition I found on camelcase, /person name/ is written personName. (The first word is NOT capitalized.) What about using single quotes vs double quotes when giving fields an alias? I thought that double quotes should be used in such cases. Don't single quotes and double quotes have different purposes when used in a SQL statement?
