    Word 2007 Crashes with 'Select from Outlook Crashe

    The most basic word processing requirement
    Add a name and address to start a letter

    Open word
    I've added "Select from Outlook Contacts" to the toolbar
    When I click it
    No error message
    Word just closes
    This happens with and without Outlook 2007 open
    I've run diagnostics with no issues reported
    All updates are in place both for windows and office

    Re: Word 2007 Crashes with 'Select from Outlook Crashe

    From searching the newsgroups I get the impression that this isn't working dependably any more in Office 2007 - the same problem is reported several times when people try to mail merge from Word with Outlook contacts as data source. The suggestion there is to initiate the merge from Outlook, but this is less attractive when you just want to write a single letter...

    See (for example) Word 2007 Mail Merge.

    Thanks Hans

    My search didn't reveal as much as yours
    That post was quite interesting
    Do you know if this has been registered with Microsoft as a bug?

    At least one Microsoft MVP for Word was involved in the newsgroup thread I referred to; I assume that he has passed the problem on to Microsoft, but whether that will have any effect I don't know.
