    Locked Fields (2003/SR1)

    I have a mail merge document that I put together from different sources. When I run the Mail Merge, I get the following message:
    "Word found locked fields during this update. Word cannot update locked fields."
    I looked at all the fields I could fine, the only 2 were the mail merge fields that I put in, one in the body, one in the header, made sure that they weren't locked but it was still looking at a locked field somewhere. After clicking OK several dozen times, I have 45 names for the mail merge, I'm guessing that is what it was looking at, it went on and printed them fine. Any idea how I get rid of this? Thanks.

    Does WD2002: Error Message: Word Found Locked Fields During Update shed any light (I assume it applies to Word 2003 too).

    Do you get the same result if the mergefield in the header is placed in the body of the document?
