      Summary

      I cannot access FMP13 to use data in Word (Office for Mac) mail merge

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      OS 10.8.5

      Description of the issue

      I produce various letters, catalogues, envelopes and emails using the mail merge function in MS Office for Mac.  I then merge data from either Excel, or FMP9.  This has always worked well.

      I have just purchased FMP13 and it no longer works.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      You will meed a copy of (Word) Office 8 or 11.
      Open blank Word document.
      Tools/mailmerge manager
      Create new/ catalogue
      Get List
      Browse to pick up a FMP13 file
      All FMP13 files are greyed out
      All FMP9 files are visible

      Expected result

      I would expect to see the FMP 13 file, click on it and it open as in pic below.

      Actual result

      It won't open unless I change the 'file description' to All files and it opens and won't work.

      Workaround

      None
