    Mail Merge Dialog Box (Word 2002)

    When you perform a mail merge, the built-in dialog box shows all MAIL MERGE RECIPIENTS as ticked and you have to select "Clear all" first and then make a selection before continuing. Does anyone know how to change this so that nothing is selected initially?

    I don't know of a way to do what you asked using the wizard inteface, but I must confess that I have never tried to work with it programatically. You don't indicate what your data source is, but I presume you are doing one-off letters. If that is the case, there are a couple of options. If you are working with a database as your data source, you could create a query that returns just one record. Another possibility is to use Automation to build a Word document on the fly for the specific case chosen. You might also want to look at the Microsoft white paper available for download in <!mskb=304862>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 304862<!/mskb>.
