Dear All,
I have a word template which is Mail-Merged with an Access File, everything works well. I usually use this template to create New Word Documents, and I usually convert all the fields to Text format by using the shortcut (CTL-SHIFT_F9). However, doing so is not enough to disconnect the Access file from my Word file, in other words the Access file is still launched whenever I open the Word file.  What is the best way to disconnect the 2 files?

To unlink a database from a mail merge document, go into TOOLS, MAIL MERGE, CREATE, and click on RESTORE TO NORMAL DOCUMENT.  Answer yes when asked.  That's all there is to it.
