Default How do I format Mail Merge doc to pick up currency format from Exc

Office 2007, Windows XP

I have created a data base using Excel that contains several numbers that
are formatted as currency. When I insert these fields into my Word document
(letter), the currency formatting is not there. I'm very new to Word 2007
and can't figure out how to change this. All help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Sherry
