Error - The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable

Hello - I'm getting this error message in a mail merge I'm doing from Access. It seems to be a common problem; 1st time through, it works fine, then blows up the 2nd time.

I've followed the advice I've found about declaring specific object variables for the Word app & doc, and then closing and setting them to Nothing at the end of the routine, but I'm still getting the error.

This started happening when I added a routine to loop through ActiveDocument.Tables (to set the font, size and column widths). It blows on the 2nd time through on the line:
     For Each tbl in ActiveDocument.Tables

Is there another object variable for the mail merge result that has to be set to empty?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks

Mark

Try decompiling your database.  It sounds like you may have so many variables that are active but out of scope that your database is freaking out.
