I cant open several of these. Is there a free prog. I can try or has anyone any ideas I might try?
All the progs. I have found on Google are rediculously expensive.

Are you using windows XP or windows7

With Windows7 there is a problem

If so search this forum for a solution

Afraid those did not help BUT, after a further search of MS help and support I have just found how to do it here:- click here under "Use the Mail Merge Helper feature in Microsoft Word" except where it says to copy and paste from Word to Works I had first to copy and paste into Excel and then to copy and paste from there into a new Word database when all was recovered.
General rejoicing!
Thanks for your interest.
