    Mail Merge (No More hdr file) (2003)

    In Word 2003 I can't find any way to use a hdr file as the source for a Mail Merge. I have searched deja on this and come up with nothing. Does anyone have any info on this issue?

    Thanks

    Re: Mail Merge (No More hdr file) (2003)

    After some extensive playing around with Word 2003 I have found how to use hdr files for Mail Merges. 'The Mail Merge Helper' dialog from Word 2000 is still available in both Word 2002(XP) and Word 2003 but you must add to your toolbar the button that loads this dialog. To do this follow these steps:

    1) Within Word go to Tools>Customize.

    2) Select the Commands tab.

    3) From the list of available categories select the one labeled 'All Commands'.

    4) Scroll through the list if items in the 'All Commands' category until you find one labeled 'MailMergeHelper'. The items should be in alphabetical order.

    5) Drag this button to any location on any of your toolbars.

    6) Exit the 'Customize' dialog.

    Clicking on this button will launch the same Mail Merge Helper from Word 2000 and it does still support the use of hdr (header) files as data sources for Mail Merges.
