I work for a financial firm and I support the technical side of the firm. I have come up with an issue with doing a mail merge in Microsoft Word 2007. An end user with previous versions of Office , was able to do a mail merge in word and place an attachment within the mail merge letter. What is happening in Office 2007, when he attaches a file into the word letter for the mail merge (during the mail merge setup process), instead of attaching the file, it displays the file inside the mail merge. So say for example, you try to attach a PDF file to a mail merge letter, instead of attaching it as a file, it opens the file within the mail merge and displays it instead, like a screenshot.
I have revived the issue on 4 other computers with office 2007 and have gotten the same issue. So I googled the problem and found that many others have had the same problem with Word 2007 and it was not getting resolved and it was concluded that it was a bug in Microsoft Office program.
Can anyone confirm this?
