    Add words native menu back on menu (w97 Sr2b)

    Hiya - how do you add the native word menu for mailmerge back onto the menu?

    Our company has custom templates which has the companys custom mailmerge which has replaced the word native mailmerge menu accessed via Tools>MailMerge.

    I've been asked to remove the companys custom mailmerge & put back on the template - the words native mailmerge.

    When I customise the menus ie
    I goto Tools>Customise> Commands under categories MailMerge - I cant find the default mailmerge menu.
    also I have a look under Tools>Customise> Commands under categories All Commands - again I cant find the default mailmerge menu to bring up the mailmerge.
    Note: I dont want to reset my menus to factory defaults as I have other custom menu options which may get removed.
    any ideas? - thanks in advance - Diana

    I have 2000, and for me it also is not obvious which command is the Mail Merge Helper. Maybe the wizards are not commands? I did find a way to do this.
    1. <LI>Open or create a "main" merge document. You should see the mail merge toolbar.
      <LI>Optionally, for your convenience, drag the toolbar to a floating toolbar positioned toward the right side of the screen.
      <LI>Open the Customize... dialog and move it out of the way of the merge toolbar (e.g., toward the left side of the screen.
      <LI>Click the mail merge helper icon on the merge toolbar to select it.
      <LI>Hold Ctrl (very important) and drag the Mail Merge Helper icon to the desired menu position. When you release, a copy of the command should appear on the menu.
      <LI>Close the Customize... dialog and now you have it. I think it's the same dialog, with the added bonus of an icon.
    Hope this does it for you!

    My little secret on screen shots is, using Paint, first save as a 16-color BMP to simplify the colors, and then immediately save as GIF. (I got rid of the gradient in the title bar because it got really ugly that way...I'm such a slave to the Lounge <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> ) Wish I knew a faster way!
