I used Albert's Word merge 20 for the first time today. I spent a few hours trying to get it to work. Access 2003, XP. This is a great collection of code and so useful, as I found from trying to debug it. Finally I found that the thing that was stuffing up was that I was calling it from a pop up form. As soon as I made the form not popup, the code worked fine. So I tried it with Albert's form Contacts. When Contacts is a popup form, I had the same problem with the code. The form Gui Word Template opens underneath the popup form. The computer opens up the folder containing word templates and shows the folder on the taskbar. When I click on the folder in the taskbar, the template folder opens but is greyed out. While the template folder is open, the form Contacts is locked up. After I close the template folder, I can close the form Contacts. Any ideas anyone?
