Using Word 97's Mail Merge Feature with Access Databases

In many cases, Access 97 isn't available to Word users who need to create form letters from data contained in Access .mdb files. Office 97 includes Microsoft Query and the necessary 32-bit ODBC drivers to connect to Access .mdb files (all versions) and Microsoft SQL Server databases, plus dBASE, FoxPro, and Paradox 3+ table files. (ODBC drivers for Excel worksheets and text files also are included.) Microsoft Query is modeled on Access's query design window, but Microsoft Query displays the query result set automatically in a separate pane below the design pane as you construct the query. Office 97 applications launch and control Microsoft Query with DDE.
