EDITING RECIPIENT LIST IN MAIL MERGE

Can anyone help with mail merge in Word 2007. Everything working fine except that the "edit" and "refresh" buttons are greyed out, preventing me from making changes to the list.

    Thank you for your prompt reply.

    I used an existing list in "Word document" form which worked fine apart from being unable to edit it and adding/removing addresses.

    Word 2007 mail merge recipients list, my edit and refresh buttons are also greyed out and I'm not able to use them. The lists are from an Access 2007 query.

Where did you select your recipient's list from? Use Existing, Out Look Contacts, or type your own? Let me know.

  • After you create the automatic reply message and set up the filter, you must leave your computer running and Outlook open in order for the message to work.
  • using the method below to set a rule that sends reply messages to all senders except those who are posting to a LISTSERV list. This prevents reply messages from being sent to everyone on a list.
  • Outlook's Out of Office Assistant tool is another option for setting an automatic reply message; however, you cannot set rules for specific mail, such as LISTSERV lists.
