Default Help! Merged data is wrong

I am merging information from Excel to Word. The data is either a P (pass) M
(monitor) or a R (Referral). This represents what a child received in a
particular developmental area we screen for. We are trying to merge the
information into a report for each child and even though the cell in Excel
states a P (pass) for Reading, in the merged Word report it is being
displayed as a R (Referral). When I merged the data into the report all R's
become P's and all P's become R's. Any suggestions??

I am using Word & Excel 2003. I realize they changed the way the two
applications communicate with each other in regards to merged data. And I
have tried reverting back to DDE and that has not worked. I have also looked
at the following article and only understand a little bit of what it is
saying and still do not know how to fix the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
