Need to export data from Excel 2013 into a Word Doc (Mail Merge) that is based upon an existing .dotx template

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
I am having trouble getting this to work. I need to make sure I am late-binding objects due to compatibility issues with various Office versions being used by coworkers.

I have an existing .dotx Word template that needs to be used as the basis for the final document. The data is coming from an SQL query of the Excel sheet.

I am finding most of my issues are with the Word aspect. It has to do with whether Word is already running or not, or if there is an open document or not.

Thanks in advance.
