    Access Prompt --> Mail Merge in Word (Office 2000)

    I have a project in school, in which we have to prompt for the pay period ending, and then it has to mail merge onto time cards that I wrote in Word. To prompt for Pay Period Ending, I wrote [Pay Period Ending?] as the field name, and it prompts, but the problem is, when I try to run the merge in word, the field comes up blank, rather than with the date that I type in when I prompt. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

    You'll want to use [Pay Period Ending?] as a criteria in the query you're using as the source for your mailmerge, not as a fieldname.

    Are you running the merge from within Word or Access (with automation code)?
