    DDE connection error during Mail Merge (Excel 2003)

    Hi All,

    Not sure if this is a Word or Excel problems since im using both and facing a problem.

    I am trying to Mail Merge using MS Excel as the Source Data, there are close to 2000 records to merge. While i try connecting using DDE connection it gives me an error. I tried copying the data into a new excel sheet and merge i am still facing the same problem. I do not want to use the other connections viz ODBC or OLE since they do not support date format.

    Can you some let me know how to solve this problem or what is the cause for this error.

    Also posted in the Word forum. Please don't ask the same question in different forums, it'll lead to duplication and confusion.
