  • Problems with merge function after IE7 Update

    After installing IE7, MS Word cannot find MS Word data source when opening a mail merge document from a mapped drive.

    1. Map a shared folder from another computer (e.g. \\\folder as S: drive)

    2. Create s:\data.doc with a table (row 1=field name, row 2=field value) for mail merge and s:\letter.doc as the letter template. Set s:\data.doc as the data source in letter.doc.

    3. Close all documents. Open s:\letter.doc.

    3a) in IE6, letter.doc opens normally.

    3b) in IE7, letter.doc cannot find s:\data.doc

    Anyone has solution for IE7?

    What does this have to do with Exchange 2000 / 2003?

    Requested admin to move to Windows XP forum.
