    Refresh Mail Merge (Office XP)

    Is it possible to create a Word document that refreshes the data each time it is opened? I have created a mail merge with data pulled from my Access query. I've never used templates or macros before. Are they options to consider here?

    Re: Refresh Mail Merge (Office XP)

    Hi Christine:
    There are several ways to "refresh" data that comes from another source in a Word document, depending on your needs. Some of the more common are:
    1. { INCLUDETEXT } fields.
    2. Copy & paste special/paste link.
    3. Insert/Database.

    It really depends upon your specifics and what you're trying to accomplish. I hope this gives you some ideas.
