Help no longer needed. The label fields had to be re-entered. I could
not (did not) recognise that they did not have a connection to the
database in spite of the fact that all fields were still present from
previous uses. I suppose it must have something to do with the loss of
database registration (during OS/LO updates?)

Problem solved.

I need help to print address labels from my database. I have had it
working e.g. a year ago, but now I am having trouble. My database
Mariadb10 on a backend server and Base on my frontend desktop.

I have followed the following procedure (as last year)
    1. From Base (adresslisten database) select File → New → Labels
    2. In window ‘Labels’ check that source of data and fields under
‘Label text:” is as desired and select Table Query Q_labels_Xmas (ie.
the one set up for labels)
    3. If not, choose Table and Database fields as desired, moving
fields into Label Text box
    4. Select Format ‘Sheet’
    5. Select Brand (z.B. Herma A4) and Type (z.B. 4278) of labels
    6. Check Tab Format of labels, in particular the left margin
be at least 0,55 cm and top margin 2,25 cm (in case of Herma 4278
    7. Tab ‘Options’ are ‘Entire page’ and ‘Synchronise contents’ 
    8. Click ‘New Document’
    9. In Writer document click page navigator ‘First Mail Merge
to highlight the related line of icons.
    10. Before generating the labels (point 13) got to the
Settings>Options and check the box ‘Left pages’ in order to suppress
the generation of blank right pages.
    11. Click icon ‘Edit individual Documents’. All labels should now
appear in a new untitled document
    12. Save the document for later printing or print directly

All fields appear in the Writer as expected.
However, step 9 fails, there is no response to synchronising with the
database data. There is no response to going to the first data
There is also no response at step 11. There is also no response to
'Synchronise labels'.
