Office Mail Merging disabled by this patch (KB957646 - MS09-024)

About a year ago our company got effected with Mail Merging due to this patch. And these particular units had MS2002 at that time and so we applied for exemptions on that update. I am just curious if someone already tested this patch on MS2003. Did anyone else had this challenge? What was your work around?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

From my research, I don't believe this specific patch applies to Office 2003, only MS Works and Office XP.

However, I have used Office 2003 for many years - fully patched - and have never experienced a problem with merging.
