I'm trying to hook a Word docx (in Word 2010) to an Access accdb (access 2010)
I open the Word docx, and from the "Mailings" tab, I click "Select Recipeints", then "Use Existing List".
Then in the "Select Data Source" dialog, I browse to and then select the accdb.
Then it hangs.
Sometimes the dialog where you select the table or query will finally pop up after 15 minutes or so.
But other times, it hangs for so long I just end the process in Task Manager.
Any idea what might be happening there?
