There are two table names on prompt box.  MMout and MMout$
I changed Table name and still got Prompt box.
Connection:="TABLE MMout"

file is excel file.  Qmail.xls.  It is exported from access table (the table name is MMout).  MMout is the Sheet name on Qmail.xls.  When I open Qmail.xls, I only see MMout.  I do not see MMout$.  But on Merge Document Prompt box shows two table name.  MMout and MMout$.
