    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


    Regards,
