Hi CJack,

Great :-)! Would you mind telling me which approach was
succesful? That will help me point others in the right
direction, in the future.

Hi John,

You're out of luck, I cleaned out my old messages the other day, so I don't
have a local copy anymore; you'd have to search via Google.com.

FWIW, mail merge can only merge to a file saved to disk (either local or
network.) No URLs, not DSNless connections, no recordsets. You have two basic
choices:
1) save the recordset to file (delimited text file or HTML table are
possibilities)
2) don't use mail merge, just automate Word to create docs and dump in the
data
