Integrating Access 2000 with Word 2000

Members of the Microsoft Office 2000 software suite are specifically designed to simplify the construction of cooperative applications. Cooperative applications use two or more Windows productivity applications to perform a specified task. One of the principal uses for database applications is creating mailing lists for use with form letters. Thus Access 2000—a member of the Professional and Premium editions of Microsoft Office 2000—includes a Mail Merge Wizard that not only automates the process of creating Word 2000 Merge data files but also helps you create new form letters.

You also can use the reverse process and create form letters by using Word 2000's mail merge process. Creating form letters from Word 2000 accommodates users who don't have Access 2000 on their computers. Word 2000 uses 32-bit Microsoft Query (Msqry32.exe) and the 32-bit Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) application programming interface (API) version 3.51 to connect to Access 2000 and earlier .mdb files, as well as to a variety of other desktop database types.
