Access 2000 and Word 2003 Mail Merge problems

    I'm encountering some serious problems trying to set Access 2000 querys

    (parameters and views) as data sources for my mail merge documents
    (Word 2003). After spending hours scouring the web for some existing
    help and coming up with nothing, its time to admit defeat and ask here

    Trying to set the data source to a preexisting parameter query via DDE
    results in
    an 'Unable to establish DDE connection' - similar to the error
    described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813989/

    Trying to set the data source to a preexisting query via ODBC results
    in a 'Word was unable to open the data source' - similar to the error
    described at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=888697

    Despite the solutions proposed in both knowledge base arguments, I have

    no luck solving these problems. The ODBC method seems to work fine with

    Tables - however, not with Queries.

    These mail merge documents worked fine in previous versions of word.

    Help appreciated

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
