Example file from Word with filtering set on the MM addressees

Attached document contains Mail Merge data connection to a file, and this is filtered in Word to only have records from the third column whose value is YES.
Similar filtering can be made in the MM wizard, but this is not imported from the file.

Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open attached document in Word. There is filtering set on the List of addressees, which results in 3 merged documents.
    2. Open the file in Writer

Actual results:
Apart from not creating the database automatically, the filtering setting is not imported either to the MM wizard -> Select Address List -> Filter dialog.

Expected results:
Filter settings imported.
