Mail Merge problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I open a Mail Merge Word document, I normally get a dialog box asking whether I want to link to the last data source used. After upgrading to Office 2010 there is a problem whereby, when the Mail Merge doc is opened from a command button in Access, that dialog box opens behind the Access window. I I then have to go to open the word document close the warning message (Dialogue box is already open) to see and open the dialogue box. I don't believe that this is an Access problem because the dialogue used to open in front before the upgrade. Is there a solution to this problem?

  • I'm currently have the problem using Access 2010 in Windows 7 64 bit but had the same problem with Access 2007 on a Vista 32 bit computer.  The dialogue box was not hidden when the database was used with Win xp.
