<font face="Comic Sans MS"> When trying to save the resulting document created by a mailmerge, Word locks up and will not allows me to save.
I am using a Word 2002 document and merging it with an Access database query via a DDE link. Once I merge the information, I want to save the new file that is created. If I select File | Save As, the original MailMerge file tries to update the fields and sticks on the first record. Both the Taskbar buttons for the Original MailMerge file and the Newly created document start flashing, but you can never get to an error message or dialog box. My Work-around for this problem is to Merge the data into the new document, then return to the Original MailMerge file and save and close it. Once the original is closed, I can save the Newly created document without any trouble. I shouldn't have to do it this way though. We never had this type of trouble with Word 2000.
I've tried accessing the Access database query information through all the different link types, to no avail. I've tried recreating the document and recreating the query. FYI...the query is not a parameter query and my "Confirm conversion on open" is checked.
Any ideas?</font face=comic>
