Discussion: software recommendation

For work I have a very large 2010 Home and Office Excel to Word mail merge document. (It's a large word document with about 20 different Excel cells merged in to different spots). My Excel sheet often opens up as read only and loses the merge connections. I have a feeling I need to find something a little more "professional" with a little less glitches. Does Microsoft Access do this mailmerge function? Is it any smoother than Excel? Also, can you make forms in Access? For example, say you have a 4 page document that you want to "jump" to different sections for typing in new information. while keeping most of the information the same. I'd love to just "tab" through a word document and type in info. Are there any other productivity products that I'm unaware of? Thanks for the help
