Default DDE Not working in Word 2007

I understand there is another way to mailmerge without using DDE or the
default. For some strange reason I loose my field values with DDE and the
default does not format correctly. This has just started..it worked before.
Did one of the updates do this?

Default DDE Not working in Word 2007

If you click on the Office button in Word and then on Word Options and then
on Advanced and scroll down to the General section of the dialog, you can
check the box for "Confirm File Format Conversion at open"

After doing that, when you attach the data source to a mail merge main
document, you will be prompted for the method by which the connection to the
data source should be made.

To overcome the formatting problem, you may need to add the appropriate
formatting switch to the mergefields.

See "Formatting Word fields with switches" on fellow MVP Graham Mayor's
