    Merging with an Excel Spreadsheet (Office 2003)

    You all answered my other questions so quickly and efficiently, that I've decided to pose another. Is there a way when using an Excel spreadsheet as my datasource, for the merged WORD document to update the fields (if any changes have been made to the Excel spreadsheet) when opened or printed?

    No, in the merged document all merge fields have been replaced with the values as they were when the mail merge was performed. In other words, the merged document does not contain the information that would be necessary to update the values. You will have to perform the mail merge again.
    If you save the merge document (that is the document containing the merge fields, as opposed to the merged document), you can re-run the mail merge at any time.
