Deleting the user profile seems to resolve the issue mentioned below.
Interestingly, the field names seem to have changed seemingly for the
better. Whereas before it was inserting things something like
filename.databasename.sheetname.fieldname, now I get "fieldname".
Unfortunately, after running the mailmerge, it seems to have made the
values in the first record (I only have one record currently) a
permanent part of the fields. For example in the fieldname "street
name", it has "Elm St", where it should instead simply have "street
name" making my .odt file useless as a mail merge document, so I'll have
to go through it for the fifth time and change all the fields yet again.
Thank you in advance.

While fooling with mail merge, I decided to clean up my databases... I
deleted them all and recreated the one I needed with a new name. That
was a major mistake from which I was unable to recover, as now my
fields don't match the database. At the same time, I added a few
fields, one of which was a currency field. Currency comes with a
comma as the thousands seperator. Which meant I could no longer use
commas as my seperator in my CSV file. So, I saved it as a tab
seperated file. So far, so good.
While converting all of the fields to use the new database, LO crashed
(nothing new, it crashes about every 5 minutes). Because of these
constant crashes I save each and every time I make just about any
change whatsoever. I was nearly done with my changes.
The difference this time is that, it goes through the recovery process
- and then crashes again. It's done this before, but typically a
second restart is enough to get it past the problem, it recovers
various files - fails to recover others that no longer exist - and
then all is well and I continue my journey. This time, no amount of
restarting LO will get it to stop crashing.
Thank you in advance.
