It's probably the mailing list that's not acceptable. You must use an Office
program such as Excel or Outlook Address Book for merge. Look up Merge in
Word's Help. There's a training course on the Office web site. An easier way
to do a mail list in Word is to use Avery Wizard add-on and type in the list
individually, then save as a Word document. That's good for Christmas card
label lists.

Without any information about your mailing list it is difficult to point a
finger at the cause of your problem - but work through the suggestions at
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/...peningWord.htm, clear the mess
created by the crashes
http://www.gmayor.com/what_to_do_when_word_crashes.htm then see
