Word97 MailMerge Problem

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Luke O'Malley, Aug 12, 2004.

  1. I have used Daytime 2000 Organizer to create a large list. One of
    the features is its ability to use an 'oputside' wordprocessor to
    merge the data. I am using Word97. I am able to successfully merge
    the data and actually see the letters with the merged data in them.
    When I print I get blank paper, but it keeps on feeding paper as
    though it was printing.

    I tried printing to file, and then printing that file - no go. In
    all cases I can see the merged data in the letters.

    Any suggestions?

  2. I forgot to mention that when i start the merge process i receive a
    msg: 'Word cannot start converter mswrd632.wpc.

    All other documents print fine.

    What OS? When you print to file what happens? Does 'no go' mean that
    the file is empty?

  4. Thank you for replying. The operating system is XP Pro. I found
    that the file was missing. I copied it from my laptop and it
    resolved most of the problems. The rest i cleared up by not
    selecting the default printer!!! It seems I have the same printer
    installed twice. The non-default printer works . . . figure that!

    Great! Good to see you have it resolved. As for that printer issue,
    hey, it's Windows! Nobody knows.
