I have a querry in Microsoft Access which I want to use in a Microsoft Word
mail merge, but the querry does not display in Word. (Microsoft Office

Open the query in Access and then use the Merge it with Microsoft Word
facility available by going to the Tools menu in Access and then selecting
Office Links and then Merge it with Microsoft Word.

This did not work. When it asked for the Word document, it then went back to
Access and displayed the two tables but no querries.

By the way, the last time I did this (a couple of years ago), I changed some
Preferences or something in Word so as to choose something other than OLE
db, I think.

Did you have the Query open with the results of it displayed in Access when
you accessed the Tools menuOffice LinksMerge it with Microsoft Word? Does
your query produce any results?

The option that you may have changed before was either under
ToolsOptionsGeneral in versions before 2007 and check the box for Confirm
Conversion on Open (or something like that. In Word 2007, you need to click
on the Office button and then on Word Options and then on Advanced and
scroll down to the General section and check the box for Confirm File Format
Conversion on Open.

Do what Doug says re. confirm conversions, then select the DDE option
when it is offered.
