Labels for label printing with mail merge fields in a Writer frontend?
A view with a SELECT statement stored in the MySQL backend?

You can change the data source name and you can change the name of the
table, view or query and then your Writer users can switch the data source
in Writer using menu:Edit>Change Source. But you should use constant fields
names. I bind all my mail merge stuff to queries with fixed column names. I
can tell my users to use a particular letter template and point it to a
distinct query within a distinct data source and everything is fine because
they find the right source for the task and the field names remain the same.
