Hard to help you without having both files.  If they contain sensitive data, change them so they don't.  Just a few records should be enough, but test with those few records first, to make sure you still get the error, and if you do, post them here.

Hi,

it could be that the Mailmerge is waiting for an Excel 97-2003 and you are giving an Excel 2007-2010 file
