       You need to use both "Data to Text" and Data to Fields" buttons
for the later to work.

1. Open new Writer document
2. Press F4 (or View ? Data Sources)
3. Select bibliography table "biblio"
4. Press left-most cell of any row to select entire row (without this step
Data to Text nor Data to Fields button is not clickable).
5. Click the "Data to Text" button to select what will be copied from the
selected row in the Data Sources window to the text documents. 6. A dialog
opens giving three choices: paste the data in table format, as fields, or
as text. The first and third choices are result in text being pasted. 7.
The "Data to Fields" button works only if you have selected "Fields" in
the dialog. To change the data showing in the fields in the text document,
select another row. Then click this button.

       In other words, you have to use "Data to Text" button to create the
fields before you can put any other data in these fields using the "Data
to Text" button.
I am afraid it still does not work as described.
When I click "Data to Text", new window appears. I check "Fields" and then
"move" (using arrow button) field from left column to right one. When I click
"OK", this window disappears, but field appears right in my document. Clicking
"Data to Fields" still does not do anything visible.

What version of LO are you using? It might be that mine is buggy or your
outdated and that's why we see different behaviors.
Question: Did you click a different row to highlight the whole row before clicking "Data to Text" button? (Click the rectangle at the left end of the row.) Unless you select another row, you will see no changes. Step 4 of your original email is the process you need to use here. My LO versions in which it works: 3.4.6, 3.5.6, AND All of them are Debian 64 bit downloaded and installed from the LO website. (I don't use the versions found in Linux distribution repositories.)
