We have an Access 2007 database on a network running on Windows Vista Business and Word 2007 documents.  Some people in the office have gotten a new computer with Windows 2007 with Office 2010.  When the new people mail merge their documents it is not saving the existing list in the Word document.  Everytime they open a mail merge document they have to create a new ODBC connection to the database.  You can save the query link and save it but when the mail merge Word document is reopened the query is not in the existing list.  ???? Thanks!

I hope that they remember that they have to save the Mail Merge Main document itself in order to preserve the new datasource settings.
