veneer repair

I am trying to repair some old furniture given to me from my mother.
: Years of neglect and moving took it's toll on the veneer. There are
: spots where the veneer is just lifted and can be reglued for the repair,
: however, most of the furniture has nicks and fairly big pieces of veneer
: chipped from places. I had some really good pointers on using some wood
: filler and filling in those spots, which worked really great. However
: when I went to stain the wood filler, it just wouldn't stain, even
: though it said it was stainable. I even tried mixing the wood filler
: and the stain together before applying it - but it wouldn't mix
: together. I read where someone used "toner" to color the filler the
: color prefered. I have looked and asked at many hardware stores and no
: one knows what I am talking about when I say toner. Obviously the stain
: doesn't work because it is oil-based and doesn't mix with the filler. I
: am very pleased with how the woodfiller worked, just not with the
: stain. If I could find the appropriate way to match the color of the veneer, I believe my repair would hardly be seen. Can you give me any information as to what I can use to stain
: the filler.
:
: Thank you
