 Creating a mail merge file for importing into Word

I have created a mail merge file in MSAccess for importing into MSWord, but
it is not happening.  This looks to be nothing more than a simple tab
delimited file creation task.  Any "secrets" to success for this?

 Creating a mail merge file for importing into Word
Hi Will,

You need to use the mailmerge helper in Word which you access by selecting
Mailmerge from the Tools menu.  First you will be asked to specify the type
of merge that you want to perform (formletters, labels, catalog) then you
will be asked for the data source.   At this point, select the open data
source option which will bring up a File>Open type dialog, in the file type
control, select the Access Database option and then navigate to your
database.

Is that the way you have tried to go about it?

If so, and you have run into a problem, post back to the newsgroup with
information on where it's coming unstuck.

Please post any response to the newsgroups for the benefit of others who may
also be following the thread.

Hope this helps,
