The Base module has, as far as I know, and I would gladly stand corrected, no specifically assigned experienced developer / programmer which knows the Base module well enough to deal with these problems. Add to that the fact that many of the current bugs are actually present in OOo 3.3.0, i.e. introduced by the OOo development team, then it is likely considered a waste of resources for the LibO team to deal with something that may, possibly, get handled by Oracle. As to your bug correction request, you would be better off filing a bug report at freedesktop.org, which is where TDF has decided that all such reports should be filed, or even better still with Oracle. AlexHi AlexThanks for your response. So far as I can see, the problem does not lie in Base but within the Text Document (Writer) modules. The address line suppression should form part of the "Print from Base" window in Text Document after you have inserted fields from your database. The Writer program responds with the wording "Your document contains database address fields. do you want to print a form letter?" When you respond "Yes", then a further box comes up with the database selected and just asks you to confirm whether you wish to send the files to "Printer" or "File".I have hesitated to show this as a bug, because the program is not wrong, it just does not do enough. Is that a bug?Alan
