Importing xls

I'm trying to get started with L&A. We need to import data from Filemaker Pro 14.

From what I've read, we may do better to perform the complex selection needed in FMP,
save the results as XLS, and import that into a spreadsheet.

I struggled through formatting a test label and now want to merge data.

I am at Chapter 9, page 132 "Importing from Text, MS Excel...."

I have the Contacts tab active (1)
I chose MS Excel (2)
I point to the XLS data file (3)
Libra Office opens and displays the file.
I see no group (4)
I see no grid as shown.
(5) is blank.

What am I doing wrong?
