I need to print address labels from a data base.

I have read the instruction online.  (one thing I don't like about Libre Office, their HELP section leaves a lot ot be desired.)

I get as far as as clicking on the mail merge.  It goes through the fourth screen but does not skip the fifth screen and go to the sixth screen.

I click on the next button but does not do anything.  If I click finish, it goes to the layout but only has the field names on it.

I have used different data bases and get the same effect.

I am using Libre Office 5.2.7.2.

I am not illiterate and I have watched the you tube and read another another website, but still can't get it to prepare the label

format for printing.

Also, there is a reference to clicking on the "Options tab page, make sure that the Synchronize contents box is selected."

I can't find this options tab, except the one under Tools, but don't see the Synchronize contents listed.

Any advice or help?

Downloaded Open Office 4.1.1

Printed the labels with no problem.

I would have thought Libre Office would be just as reliable and workable.

Have to find some way to contact Libre Office about this.
