    Mail merge installs Access 2000 (Word 2000)

    I have both Access 97 and Access 2000 installed on my computer. Is it possible to do a mail merge in Word 2000 with an Access 97 database. everytime I try it Access 2000 wants to be the one to be used.

    My experience is the same as yours.
    The same thing also happens in the other direction - if you try to initiate the merge from within Access , Access 2000 will always use Word 2000. When I tried to use Access 2000 with Word 97 it wouldn't work.

    Someone else may know a way to force it do what you want.
    Regards
