      Accessing Filemaker 11 from MS Word 2011 - Mail Merge

      Post

      I have a Word mail merge letter I want to send out.

      I have my Filemaker 11 database open, I go into my form letter in MS Word.

      I go into the Word letter, open the mail manager, go down to get list, select Filemaker, I then select my Filemaker database and get the error messages:

      • Filemaker pro error Object not found.

      • Word was unable to open the data source.

      I have previously gone to filemaker, sharing, filemaker OBDC settings, and turned on OBDC access to file - all users for my database.

      Any clues on what I'm missing and how to get Word to access my database?

      (I know I can just export the file and then mail merge it but thought it might be quicker to access it from Word).

      Thanks for any help
