Using Word 2000's Mail Merge Feature with Access Databases

In many cases, Access 2000 isn't available to Word users who need to create form letters from data contained in Access .mdb files. Office 2000 includes Microsoft Query and the necessary 32-bit ODBC drivers to connect to Access .mdb files, Excel spreadsheets, Microsoft SQL Server OLAP Services, SQL Server, Oracle, Foxpro, and text databases. 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 2000 applications launch and control Microsoft Query with DDE.

Note

You need to have Microsoft Office 2000 installed on your PC to create the examples in this section. Access 2000 and Jet 4.0 require the 32-bit ODBC 4.0 drivers. Office 2000 includes the 32-bit ODBC driver for Access 2000 databases, Odbcjt32.dll.
