Document is a set of stickers thus using "next record" field in all but the first box.
If I change source database using the "exchange database" from "Edit" Menu to a new one with a different registered name, e.g. "Catalogue1" to "Catalogue2", the "exchange database" recalculates all fields names to bind to Catalogue2.
Catalogue1.table.field become Catalogue2.table.field
However, "Next Record:Catalogue1.table" remains "Next Record:Catalogue1.table".
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description
Data fields are properly processed but not the "next record" field.
"Next Record:Catalogue1.table" remains "Next Record:Catalogue1.table".
"Next Record:Catalogue1.table" should become "Next Record:Catalogue2.table".

Could you provide minimal document and database files so testers can test more efficiently?
Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the files.

"Catalogue" became "Catalogue2" for data fields but remained "Catalogue" for "Next records" fields.
Mike, please look at this bug
Marc, some new releases of LibreOffice are available since this bug was reported. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
I confirm the bug is still there in both
18.104.22.168 : my regular install
22.214.171.124 : snap install
sorry for the late reply.
marc: can you explain in more detail, how we should test with your attached files?
Here are my steps so far:
1. Open Stickers.odt
2. Edit - Exchange database - Browse - Catalogue.ods
3. Edit - Exchange database - Browse - Catalogue2.ods
Now what should I look at? I see the Next record fields are the empty grey blocks at the top of Auteur fields, but how can I confirm this: "Next Record:Catalogue1.table" remains "Next Record:Catalogue1.table"
Sorry, I forgot to mention that you should enable Menu / View / "Field Names" to actually see that the database reference part changes for all fields but the "Next Record".
So full scenario should be
1. Open Stickers.odt
2. enable View / "Field Names"
3. Edit - Exchange database - Browse - Catalogue.ods
4. Edit - Exchange database - Browse - Catalogue2.ods
Thanks, now I was able to confirm.
