I am trying to do a selected mail merge and ever time I get to the part we I select the files that I in my contacts it is looking at personal folder/Sent Items/Conflict. It will not allow me to select where my pst's are.

"Conflict"??

Make sure in Outlook first, that the contact folders you wish to use are "address books". Do this by right-click and hit properties, address book tab.

Yes, as far as I can tell in my Outlook properties contact are listed on both.

Though when I go to mail merge wizard, first I choose the label type and then it ask me to choose contact folder using Outlook, when I do it gives me the previous path that I listed earlier.

I would first run repair on Outlook, and then on Word.

Do not open either in between your repairs.

It is really easy to do unless you are trying to send an attachment with it. The following steps described how:



Opened a new word document
On the tools menu select "Letters and Mailings"
Select Mail Merge Wizard
Select letters
Click on NEXT - starting document
Select the starting document type
click on next select recipients
Under select recipients - select from Outlook contacts
Click on browse and select your address book
Choose your contacts and click in step three of six next write your letter
Click the address block and it will add the entire address to your letter or you can select more items and customize your letter using what ever data field you wish to select.
Click next to preview your letters
Click next complete the merge
click Mail merge and the documents will be sent


If you find out how to do attachments I would certainly appreciate your sending the information to me
