Mailmerging on Outlook sub-folders

  Adelphos 22:53 02 Oct 2005

Can anyone please explain why I can't make the Word mailmerge wizard connect onto sub-folders in my Outlook Contacts?

If you're using Outlook 2000 or newer you can mailmerge from within Outlook rather than from within Word, Adelphos, see if that helps any. In Outlook, click on the Contacts folder and go to Tools > Mailmerge.

The Outlook Mailmerge simply throws me back into Word and I can't get the list of contacts in the folder I want to use to come up within the Word mailmerge document

I found if I copied all the contacts in a sub-foler into the main Contacts folder and then used the filter to pick up the ones I wanted, the mailmerge worked.

But what I'd like to know is why won't the mailmerge pick up a Contacts sub-folder for mailmerging. It's a pain to have hundreds of contacts all in the one main Contacts folder.

Anybody any ideas?
