    KB article 885832 states exactly my problem. I have an Access query which makes a table as the data source for a Word 2003 merge document. It takes the results of a single record and plonks it in a table and does that exactly as expected. However when access calls Word2003 it says I need to locate the data source - I do that, I save the file and bingo I get the right result. But the next time and subsequently every time I run that merge I get Word stopping and asking for the data source. If I just click Cancel -it finds the correct data source anyway!
    The fix is suggested that Office 2003 Service Pack 2 is installed. I have done that and it has not fixed the problem
    Has anyone experienced this very annoying problem which has cost me a whole day trying to rectify?????
