Hi All,
I have just noticed this folder "My Data Sources" in "Documents" (Vista),the folder contains 2 folders,

Connect to New Data Source and NewSQLServerConnection

Both Microsoft Excel Files.
Can anyone tell me what these files are,and can I delete them. I have no idea how they got onto my computer (Toshiba Laptop).

My understanding is that they are created for mail merge. Have you done a mail merge?

  tonyq 12:05 06 Jan 2010

yes I have done some mail merge in the past,but these files/folders are,date modified 25/09/2000 long before I did any mail merge.

I have the same date on mine. It is an installation for mail merge. See click here.

They take up very little room and personally I would leave it there.

Just to add to that. If you are planning to do any more mail merges then I would definitely not delete it.

Thank you Woolwell,I will keep them.
