    MailMerge - Select recipients from Outlook Contact (WordXP)

    Hi. I would like to set up a mail merge in Word to a group of people stored in my Outlook Contacts folder. However, when in the MailMerge wizard I select "Choose Contacts Folder" I get the error "Unable to obtain the list of tables from the data source".
    Is it possible to link to a Contacts address list? I have a few Global Address Lists which I would like to access from Mail Merge.

    Thanks.

    He seems to advocate starting the merge from Outlook - with the Contacts folder selected you can click on Tools-MailMerge... which allows you to make your way into Word - maybe trying that will address your issue.
    Good luck
