Default Word Merge from Outlook Address Book does not show contacts

Working with XP Pro SP2, and Outlook/Word 2003

Trying to do a Word Envelope merge for the Contacts in Outlook. As I use
the Wizard I come to the part where I select Use Outlook Address Book, select
Contacts. At that point, the wizard shows the field names from Outlook, but
none of the contacts.

So far, I have:

Checked to make sure that "show this file as an email address book" is
checked on the contacts folder properties page.

Made sure I can see the contacts in the address book when composing an email
- I can.

Scrolled the entire lenght of the contact merge window in Word (thinking
that the first several contacts may not have full contact records - but the
whole window is empty... yet I have a scroll bar that I can move - which is
odd.

I have only one profile under Control Panel | Mail

Outlook is set to be the default email program

I have only one contact folder to choose from

I have run scanpst on the pst file in question.

Unintalled and reinstalled Word. Backed Up Outlook and uninstalled,
reinstalled Outlook.

I think something is corrupted somewhere in the registry that it is grabbing
an empty address book somewhere... or there is there a setting buried
somewhere that I am missing. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

I have not seen this before, but the Outlook newsgroup may be able to help.
However http://www.gmayor.com/mailmerge_from_outlook.htm will suggest a
workaround.
