  • Hi,

    The data source can’t be in a supported dBase III or dBase IV (.dbf) database file type for the mail-merge.

    To work around this issue, save the database file as either of the following file types:

    • Text and Tabs (*.txt)
    • Text and Comma (*.csv)

    More information, you can refer to KB article below:

  • Hi pld_32

    Since your question does not involve programming it would be better for you to ask in a venue that supports end-user questions. You'll find more people there with experience doing what you're trying to do. For example:
