    Merge using Outlook Public Folder (2002)

    When trying to use a Public Contacts folder as the data source for a Word merge, I get this

    "This operation cannot be completed because of dialog or database engine failures."

    I know I can start the merge from Outlook and it works. But is there a way to make it
    work from Word?

    According to <!mskb=320838>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 320838<!/mskb>, "Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem ..."
    They only suggestion is what you mention: initiate the merge from Outlook <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>
