Created attachment 108066 [details]
screenshot error message

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #68925 +++

1) Use the textfile from above bug as a text-based datasource to create a ODB file via the db creation wizard (connect to existing database, choose text, then folder where text file is located)

2) Open the ODT file from the abovereferenced bug.

3) Press Ctrl-P, answer yes to the question

4) Error message, see attached screenshot

What should happen : data from text source db should be merged with document template
Comment 1 Alex Thurgood 2014-10-19 16:18:29 UTC
Confirming that same occurs on two different machines and also on master 440 alpha build
Comment 2 Alex Thurgood 2015-01-03 17:38:36 UTC
Adding self to CC if not already on
Comment 3 Lionel Elie Mamane 2015-01-15 12:28:16 UTC
Works for me in current master (4.5.0.alpha) and, after I register the created odb under the name "DRUCKE_GOFFICE", which is the name expected by attachment 85180 [details].

Might be a duplicate of bug 80968.
