Mail Merge with Access 1.0 Database Starts at Record 0 (Zero)


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
  • Microsoft Access 1.0


When you use a Microsoft Access 1.0 database through DDE as the data source in a Word 6.0 for Windows mail merge, the record selector will initially show record 0 (zero), even though the data merged is from record 1.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access version 1.0. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Access version 1.1.


As soon as you choose another record, Word will display the correct record number.

Additional query words: 6.0 1.0 1.10 access winword word6
