Thank you, i'm off to look now. could you tell me how to preform a query please? this is maybe were i'm going wrong?

Sorry but I'm a complete moron when it comes to Access.

I suggest that you start a new thread - 'How to run an Access query' or similar.

It's actually excel that i've been working with for the query, sorry i should of said. I think i'm going to give up on this course i'm finding it really hard.

Ah, well I do know a bit about Excel....

Do you mean that you are simply using an Excel file as the data source?

yes i think so as thats what i've been given to work with, i'll post what it says i have to do

Part C
Your manager has now asked you to print the ‘Special Offer’ notice. To save disk space, the company would normally request that merged documents are not saved. However, on this occasion, you will be required to save the merged file.

1. If you closed the specialoffer document at the end of Part B, re-open this document now.

2. Perform a mail merge query to find the contracts receiving the special offer of 50 free minutes.

3. Merge the query and save it in a new document.

4. Print the results (again, take a screenprint of this to show your tutor).

5. As an exception to normal policy, save this merged document with the filename 50mins.

See click here click here

It is really quite straightforward once you get the hang of it. I dis this recently using Word and Excel 2007 - unfortunately the instructions for Office 2003 are completely different.

Thank you so much, hopefully this will sort it out . Its the 'getting hang of it' part thats hard lol , the downfall with this course (clait plus) is that you have to have a 100% pass rate, think i'm doomed lol
Thank you again for all your help, Michelle.
