I keep getting this error when trying to merge data into fields I've created in Word 2003.

"MS Word could not finish merging these documents or inserting theses documents to the database"

Any clue on this one?  I can't find anything referencing this on the net.

Thanks,

Another thing, how can I make sure that Word 2003 is set as default on the Operating System, is there a Registry Value that I can check to make sure it's not referencing Office 10 or 9?

I am not sure if this will help you out, but try taking a look at this article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;212358.  What is your OS, and what are you merging from?  What do you mean by Word 2003 is set as default on the OS.  If you have installed it then chances are it is your default editor for Word .docs.  Did you have a previous version istalled, and if you did, then when you installed the new office it should have installed the newest version as deafult.  Let me know!

Good Luck,

Corey

Wiggs106, yes this is what I'm looking for I believe.  My co-worker and myself thought it might be the same thing but wanted to double-confirm that he may have double-quotation marks in his data source.  Thanks ~ itsmevic
