Can't mail merge email with outlook and word 2007

Q: Can't mail merge email with outlook and word 2007

I have windows 7 & office 2007. I am attempting to create an email merge. I have tried to do so starting with first with outlook (which takes me to word) which failed in sending, and then starting with word (which takes me to outlook and then back to word) and also failed in sending. I have followed all instructions to a T (as provided by help in both programs as well as microsoft help online).

What am I missing? Is there some connection between the 2 programs that needs to be set up first?

I used Word 2007 for mail merge to send about 1000 mails to my prospects
After I click the Merge and Complete button, for every email it sends, outlook pops a warning
"Some program is trying to access to send email. If it is not ok, click deny and check your virus settings ..."

I am forced to click "Allow" for every mail, this is too much to take for the number of mails I am sending
Is there a way to disable this warning system when I am doing a mail merge

Kindly help

Thanks and regards

I have been sending individual emails to roughly 400 of my clients and perspective clients per month.  I have been sending them one by one so I could personalize it. I need to be able to do the following.  
Include the first name of my client after "Good Afternoon _______ "   in the body of the email.
Select 1 of my 3 business email addresses from my Microsoft Outlook 2007 Imap emails.
Include 2 PDF documents.  
Using mail merge via  Microsoft Word does not give these 3 options from what I can find.  This would save me so much time if I can send personalized mass emails to my clients.  Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to use Word 2007 Mail Merge to compose and send email messages. My email client is Windows Live Mail. I do not have Outlook. I do not need to access my WLM Contacts list. The email addresses I want to send messages to are in a column of the Word table that I am using as the Mail Merge data source. I have gone through all of the steps of a Mail Merge, including writing the email message, inserting data fields into it, and selecting recipients. The last step is to finish, merge, and send messages. I click on that step and nothing happens - no error message appears but no messages are sent. Any advice? It's possible this can't be done, but I am hoping it can.

Been having a problem with editing the recipient list in mail merge. When I go to save the edited list, I get one of two errors- a "read only" error if saving to a network drive, or a "insufficient permission" if saving to a local drive.

I've been able to duplicate this problem on multiple machines, with multiple files in both the .doc and docx. format. The data files are tables in Word, I have not tried duplicating the issue with Excel or Access datasources.

Of course, I have made sure the data files are not actually read only...

I am formating a letter through Microsoft Word 2007 using Mail Merge. This is the layout I am using:

«FirstName» «MiddleInitial» «LastName»«Comma»«Suffix»
«Address1» «Address2»
«City» «State_Abbr», «Postal_Code»

They all have Mergefield in the brackets with \b" " at the end of the bracket. The problem I am having is that a space appears in front of "FirstName" throwing off the alignment.

Is there a code or something I can put before to fix this??

Thank You!!!!!

Welcome to the forum. I would check the FirstName field in your datasource to make sure you do not have a leading space within it. If so just delete them and you should be fine.

A:Excel 2007 Mail Merge with Word

On the Microsoft forums, a semi-fix was posted for the same problem. Go through the Mail Label Wizard and when you get to "Step Four", press "F6" and tab to the "Update Labels" and hit enter (don't use the mouse to "enter". For some reason, that propagates all the labels.

However, for 85 records, it created 85 pages of labels.

Page 1 = Record 1-30;
Page 2 = Record 2-31, etc.

So I printed pages 1, 31, 60 and got my 85 labels.

Is any of this sound familiar to anyone?

I am running an application that uses automated mail merge from access records called by a VB6 programme. It generally works fine on all versions of Word but periodically Word 2007 on an XP machine is not closing properly leaving the template open and therefore, next time one attempts to run the same mail merge one gets a 'document in use' message.

It is working fine in most environments - this particular PC did have both Word 2003 and 2007 loaded. We have removed 2003 but this doesn't seem to have solved the problem.

Any ideas anyone?

Opening this document will run the following SQL command....

Data from your database will be placed in the document. Do you want to continue?

I click "Yes", but that warning keeps popping up everytime I open the document? is there a setting in 2007 that I can set so it doesn't prompt me all the time? I have added the location of the documents in the "trusted zone", but not sure where else to look?

Label 3 ----------seperator----------Label 4
on the next page:
Label 2 ----------seperator----------Label 3

why does not continue from label 5 in the next page, and finish at label 8???

Using a mail merge in Word 2007, importing the data from an Excel spreadsheet.

The problem occurs when there's empty data in the last field out of 4, which are all in one cell in a word table. If any of the first three fields are blank, Word leaves no gap, but if the last field is blank it displays as a blank line, which ruins the vertical alignment. Is there anything that can be done about this, or is it a limitation of the software?

We have just moved from Word 2003 to Word 2007 and I am having a slight problem with mail merge. Whereas with 2003 when selecting the source data (Excel 2003) I was able to bring it in as DDE, now the only option I have when bring in the data (Excel 2007) is to select OLE Database file. Whilst this does work, the merged fields especially currency amounts, do not retain their formatting, but when I used to bring them in as DDE they did. I know I can go in and amend the field codes to put it back, but I would rather not have to.

Is there some setting somewhere I need to change to get the DDE option back?

We are now on Office Pro 2007. We use Mail Merge in Word extensively, using our Access database as the source. We have 2 computers in the office.

When we open the mail merge document, it links to Access properly (we generally open the Access db first because it is quicker). We then merge to an individual record and save the merged document as *.docx.

When we re-open the document, it should be a normal Word document. Now what is happening is that when the merged document is created on MY computer, it opens the link to Access. When the merged document is created on THE OTHER computer, it opens as it should, without the link to Access.

Any ideas on what is going on???

This may or may not be a word problem. It may be something that can be accomplish in Access.
I am doing a mail merge in word. The mail merge may produce 1 sheet or it may produce 10 sheets, depending on the amount of fields it needs to print. Example: I need to print coupons. One person may have 10 and another may have 100. The way I have been doing this, (and it is time consuming), I create an Access file with all the fields. Then I merge them into a Word doc. I have 12 coupons that will print to one sheet. The coupons with data, (all different), will print the amount on them and the fields that have no data will print VOID on them.

The Word document you're using is that based on a previous word version?
There may be a problem with the docuemnt reference files or something like that since it uses a kind of ODBC link to read the data and probably cannot find the expected reference and throws the error.

At present I am running Windows 7 64 bit with Microsoft Office 2007.

I also use a bespoke piece of software that uses access 97 databases. I am not able to port over to access 2007 due to the bespoke software needing access 97.

A major part of the bespoke software uses mail merge functionality into word. Due to hard drive issues I have had to re install the software on a new pc (windows 7 64 bit running ms office 2007.)

When ever I try to do a mail merge, there is an SQL error for linking to the access 97 database.

I am unsure how to correct this issue since I only have access 2007 on my computer. I suspect it has to do with the datasource or odbc driver.

One of the problems your going to face is getting labeled as a spammer. If your sending these internally it may not be a problem. The standard answer for this is to Outsource this if your sending over 100. Good decision not to launch the real one yet.

When I try a mail merge to make mailing labels with Word 2002, I always use my Outlook contacts for the data.

However, Word always gives me an error message that says that Outlook is not configured as the defualt mail client. It instructs me to make the changes in Outlook and to try again.

I've been in Outlooks Tools menu, as the help files tell me, and have checked the settings, and made sure the box is checked to configure Outlook as the defualt email program, but Word behaves the same.

Any suggestion?

We have several Word documents (PO's, Quotes, etc.) that currently are used with ACT! to do mail merge (only to import contact info to a single document).

Recently I send out a bulk email for our CEO (ya, that's right, the big guy!?!). I had a mailing list as my datasource, created the document in Word (as my email editor), attached two files and sent it off. However, once the merge was performed and everything was sent out the attachments either weren't on the resulting mass email, or only the icons for the attachments appeared. Simply, the attachments seemed to be stripped off the resulting email.

Does anyone have an explanation for this? I've looked on the MS Knowledge base to no avail. I'd really like to be able to explain it to the CEO so I look like less of a bumbling idiot!


A:Attachments disappear in Outlook/Word email merge

Hi, I don't have an answer for you but you seem to be trying to do the same thing I want to do - send an email/merge mass mailing and include an attachment to the email. When I start in word and do the mail merge/email function I can send a form letter type text email to everyone in a mailing database but I can't figure out how to have each email attach one (the same) document as an attachment. It sounds like you figured it out. Let me know how you did it and i can let you know if I have the same problem you did or not. Thanks

This fixes the problem of having word show an empty address book from Outlook Contact folder when doing a mail/merge in Word.

1. I went to Outlook, clicked on Tools, then Email Accounts, then View or Change Existing Directories or Address Books

2. I then highlighted Outlook Address Book and clicked on Change

3. I then removed each address book listed, clicked on close, clicked on finish.

4. I then went to each Contacts Folder and right mouse clicked and selected the Properties option.

5. I then clicked on the Outlook Address Book tab

6. I put a check mark in the "Show this folder as an email address book"

Prior to all this each contact folder already had this checked. So God only knows why this issue existed but it did.

After doing these 6 steps I went to do a mail merge in word and selected the Contact Folder that had been showing up empty before. It no longer was empty.

Hi All,

I am trying to do an e-mail merge from a database that is saved on my hard drive.

According to the help files in WORD 2000, I should be able to do this, similar to sending form letters, only e-mail instead.

I can get everything set up and working, right up to the Merge dialog box, but all I have to select for Merge To, is 'New Document,' or 'Printer.' According to the WORD 2000 help files, there should be an option called 'Electronic Mail.' There is not, and I don't know why. I am apparently missing something, but I can't figure it out.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated. Any thoughts as to what else I may run into--difficulty wise--would be appreciated also.

What is the quickest way to create a mail merge in Word 97.

A:Word 97 Mail Merge

Some pointers:

I personally prefer using Excel as my data source (get data, change files of type to Excel). The mail merge helper will actually use a Word table as the data source (create data source) if you follow through the steps.

Regardless, your column headings in the data source need to be in row 1 and the first record of data must be in row 2.

Follow the steps in the mail merge helper. Generally, you'll use "active document" when prompted, except when performing the actual merge--use new document.

When you've put the codes into the letter, labels, etc., I suggest testing it (use the <<abc>> button on the mail merge toolbar), and then saving it as a template. Close it, hit file-new whenever you want to use that merged letter, label, etc.

Recognize that you're creating two files. The data source (put "data" into the name somewhere) and the coded file (put "merge" in the name somewhere).

Check here, if you can. 2000 and 97 are virtually the same when it comes to mail merge:

I have a list of records that will be merged from either an Excel worksheet or an Access database. The ID Number field repeats for multiple records but I would like the merged document to show the ID field once but list all records with that ID as on the same document page(s). When the ID number changes, then the next group of records are merged under that ID. Can this be done?

I have an access db that has .bmp files linked by SIS ID. I would like to merge the .bmp into a mail merge with Word 07.

I have never successfully been able to do this but thought I would try again. I have the word doc setup with a text box that I want the pic to merge into.

The SIS ID always shows up but not the .bmp.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much!

Can you post a copy of the Word Doc and a Bmp file?
I have never used mail merge in word, but I could try using VBA to do it.

Hi I am just trying to learn how to mail merge with word 2010

I start Word then click on Mailings, then click on start mail merge, then click on envelopes, then select the size of envelope, then select recipients, and all works ok except the address block is almost at the bottom of the envelope no matter what setting I use.

I know I can grab this address block and move it anywhere.

But is there not a way to make the default position higher on the envelope please

Also I see using this method it prints the City County and post code on the same line

Is there a better way to select addresses and print without having to alter every ones position please

Have a look at these MS website to see if there is anything that helps you. In the second one which is applicable to Word 2007 there is a section on printing envelopes which may help you.

I am running MS Office 2003 and am trying to create a Word macro to open a main document with an attached data source, execute a merge and save the resulting document. I just get an error message: " Run time error 5852, Requester object is not available". I have been able to create a macro to execute a merge and save the resulting document on a main document that I open normally but not when opened by the macro itself. What am I doing wrong?

Using Windows 98, trying to do Excel to Word mail merge.
Workbook name
Worksheet names:

I have named cell ranges on each of the sheets, and would like to use that information selectively for a variety of mail merges in Word. When doing the merge though, my only choice for Data source, is entire spreadsheet...and my "named" ranges do not show up? Any advice...named ranges are named in following manner:
Board='Board'!$A1!Bx17 etc
Any help would be appreciated, please cc the email to
[email protected] as I will be working on this tonite at home too.

Dear TSGF: No one ever answered my post, so I assume, as is always dangerous, that no one knew the answer. However, I figured it out even though it is not intuitively obvious from the MS standpoint! Here's the answer to my own question"

If you do not have Excel ODBC Drivers, Please install them in this way :

1) Click on Start --> Settings --> Control Panel

2) Select 'Data Sources (ODBC)' and press Enter key.

3) Goto 'System DSN' tab (3rd tab out of 7 tabs) in the "ODBC Data Source Administrator" dialog box.

4) Click on ADD.

5) Select 'Driver do Microsoft Excel (*.xls)' from select driver list box.

6) Click on Finish

Now you will see 'ODBC Microsoft Excel Setup' dialog box.

7) Type a name in 'Data Source Name' and click OK.

Now, Microsoft Excel ODBC Drivers are installed onto your system.

NOTE : You must install Excel ODBC Drivers prior to using mail merge facility.The Microsoft Excel ODBC driver must already be installed.

NOTE: In the Select Table dialog box, you will see all the tables in the workbook, not just the ones from the first sheet.

To connect to Excel using ODBC, follow these steps:

1) From the Get Data list, click Open Data Source.

2) Locate and select the Microsoft Excel file. In the Open Data Source dialog box, make sure that the Select Method check box is selected.

3) Click Open.

4) In the Confirm Data source dialog box, select "Excel Files via ODBC (*.xls)," and click OK.

5) In the Select Table dialog box, select a Named range from the list (the lists contains the available named ranges) and Click OK.

6) Edit the main document and continue with the merge process.
