    I have a question regarding mail merge in Word 2007. After completing a mail merge and closing, the information on the data form is not saved and a message appears stating the file is read-only. How can I get the data form to save the information? This feature worked in Word 2003.

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    This appears to be a "known" problem. Word MVP Peter Jamieson mentioned almost two years ago that the issue was being investigated (See Re: Word 2007 "Read-Only" error when changing source data) but it's still being reported...
    In the above topic it's suggested to use an Access database as data source for the merge.
