    Mail Merge up the wazoo

    A peculiar occurrence, especially considering that I haven't used Mail Merge on this system (WinME, Office 2000): Clicking on Tools shows 15 (!) entries for Mail Merge. One one will expand to options (document type, data source, etc.) although the others (at least 3 that I bothered checking) appear to be active, showing me a window with the Mail Merge Helper. Any explanations/solutions? Thanks in advance.

    Hi DenGar,

    The Works Suite Add-In has been known to cause this.

    In your Control Panel, go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall it.

    Once that is complete,

    - In Word right-click a toolbar and select Customize
    - Drag off the Tools menu
    - Select the Commands tab in the Customize dialog
    - In the Categories list, locate Built-in menus
    - Drag the Tools menu back in place

    Or if you haven't made any customizations to the menu bar:
    - Select the Toolbars tab if necessary
    - Scroll down to Menu Bar
    - Select it and click Reset

    Note that the Mail Merge Helper may appear different than before since that is one of the items the add-in changed.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Cheers!
