Suddenly my computer (and everyone elses) is unable to mail merge an excel document into word. I'm using windows 98 but other operating systems are having problems too. It just says - word was unable to open the data source.

I have tried saving as something else and on other drives (it is currently on a shared drive) but to no avail.

Any ideas greatly received

Thanks

Does this only happen with one specific Excel file? Could be that the file is corrupt. If possible, try opening the file and copying and pasting the data into a new Excel document (rather than using the save as function). Let us know if that doesn't help.
