Can anyone tell me why I am getting the below message when I try to access my Outlook contacts while selecting recipients using Mail Merge in Word 2007?

Unable to obtain list of tables from the data source.

I could do this no problem from Office 2003. A couple of users here can do it in 2007 and a few of us can't. Must be a setting of some sort but I can't find it.

Thank you!

Have you done a complete install of Office? It sounds to me like some of the data access components might not be present. Run the install again and check that you've got everything set to run from hard drive.

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, it didn't help. Still the same error.

Strangest thing... still not working. I find it odd that some users in the company can do it and others can't. I'm thinking that it must be a setting that has been turned off/on. I'll keep looking. If anyone has any other suggestion, I really appreciate it!

Have a good one....
