    Greeting line Mail Merge (XP)

    I rarely use Microsoft Word and almost never use mail merge - have to do it - when I get to the Greeting Line field - see attached - I've tried every place within Word, the Control Panel, I can think of to change this from German to English US - no can do.

    Help please!

    Yes - set to English US - also went to the Control Panel to make sure that was set to English US.

    This kind of wrong-language problems is very difficult to troubleshoot and solve. You could take a look at Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word,197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word<!/post>, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort. I would simply avoid using the greeting line, and use the standard merge fields and word fields instead.

    I had already taken that route - but thanks for at least letting me that Word is the problem and that, for a change, I'm not!

    Have a great day
