We are running a query through Excel to an external Database then running a Word mail merge to labels with the Excel sheet as the Database.   We are successful in our attempt to filter information while in the select recipients window, however when we choose to save the infomation, it returns us to our original state without the filter recipients.  What we would like to do is the return to where we saved the information, with our filtered recipients.  Does anyone know of a tweak, checkbox, etc. to allow this to happen?  There must be something I'm missing.  We are working in Office XP Pro.
