Word Mail Merge

You can link a Word merge document directly to an Access table or query; however, there are some drawbacks to this method. The merge document won't open unless the Access database is available and is in the same location as when the merge data source was selected. Because of this limitation, when using mail merge I prefer to export the Access data to a text file, and assign the newly created text file as the merge documents data source. This means that the document can be opened without Access being available, and without the need to establish a link to a database.
