Hi Michael,

But for anyone else following, here's the slightly amended suggestion:
1. Open the Base file used by the Writer merge file
2. (With Base still open, but not as an action from within Base, just using
a file manager) Open the source Calc file, Make your edits and save.

You don't need to save them at this moment.
Rows, which appear in the table of Base, will be changed by "Refresh" in
the table (Data → Refresh).
New Rows won't appear directly in the table. Close the table and go to
View → Refresh Tables. Now new Rows will be shown.

3. With Base still open, open the table related to the merge, and on the
toolbar select "rebuild".
4. Save the Base file.

Also you don't need to save the Base file. Nothing has been changed.
Base file will only connect from Calc to Writer. Or did there appear the
littel star in the Save symbol?

4A. Close all LibreOffice files. (**)
5. Open the Writer merge file, and your changes should be present.

(**) --- I use a Linux OS ... I've found that this close all office files
step is required in Linux, but not always in Windows. Or more specifically,
I find that when I follow youtube videos about LibreOffice made from
Windows, including 'close all Libreoffice' as a step after making updates
elsewhere seems to make stuff work that just doesn't work for me like it
does in the video.

I'm using Linux (OpenSUSE 15.2) also. I haven't closed any file for
this. You only have t press "Refresh" for the table of the database in
the database browser of Writer.
