Mail Merge Wizard in Word XP

By christy_3303 ·
I recently installed Windows 2000 on my PC. I have Word XP and PC Docs. When I try to run the mail merge wizard in Word, I get an error message that says cannot complete due to a dialog or database error, try again later. How do I fix the mail merge wizard. I believe all other wizards are working correctly.

Greetings,

Cut and paste the following link into your browser. (REMOVE SPACES if they snuck in while pasting.) The Microsoft article, Q290408, named "Frequently Asked Questions About Mail Merge" has a lot of information and resolutions as well aslinks to other pertinent articles.

Good luck,

Maxwell

I can't find a specific reference, but you might check to see that you have WP convertors installed.
I'm guessing that there is a conflict between the WP oriented PcDocs and Word XP.
Try it out by trying merging with another database.
