    I am trying to print address labels using Word and an Excel file with the addresses.
    I have done this before with no problem. ( I sent a mailing out every two months ) But this time I get this error: Word was unable to open the data source.
    The data source is an Excel file that Word was previously able to open. I can open it on its own without a problem. I am using XP ( I tried on a Vista OS too ) Both Word and Excel are 2002 versions. In all other respects both programs behave normaly

    OK !!!!(y)

    CW ( that's CHARMING WIFE ) solved the problem. She selected all the proper address, cut and copied to a new file and then it worked.

    Bravo.:)
