We are now on Office Pro 2007. We use Mail Merge in Word extensively, using our Access database as the source. We have 2 computers in the office.

When we open the mail merge document, it links to Access properly (we generally open the Access db first because it is quicker). We then merge to an individual record and save the merged document as *.docx.

When we re-open the document, it should be a normal Word document. Now what is happening is that when the merged document is created on MY computer, it opens the link to Access. When the merged document is created on THE OTHER computer, it opens as it should, without the link to Access.

Any ideas on what is going on???

I have never used Mail Merge, but it sounds as if on your Computer the merge data is being "Linked" instead of "Imported".

mail merge is an option that allows to send the same article to different people, you chage only the receiver address
