Default Spurious Or filter rule being added

I'm trying to do a mail merge in Word 2007. I'm using an Excel spreadsheet as
my data source, and specifying some filter rules to select the records I
want. Every time I close the Mail Merge Recipients dialog box, and extra "or"
rule that I didn't specify is spuriously added to the Filter Records box,
causing a whole lot of records to be included that I don't want. What on
earth is going on?

Thanks - Rowan
