OFFICE 2013 - Word could not re-establish a DDE connection to Microsoft Query

    Question

  • Hi, I have installed office 2013 on a pc and used excel to run a query on a database and created a .qry query so I can use this data in word mail merge.

    The query runs ok and returns the data.

    However, when I go to take the data in through mail merge it comes up with a message "Confirm data source" ( I enabled this after  reading kb article below) so I select "MS query files via DDE(*.qry, *.dqy)" as this is a .dqy I select it. It says at the bottom of the screen word is starting query then comes up with the error  "Word could not re-establish a DDE connection to Microsoft Query to complete the current task".

    I have re-did the query from scratch and no difference I tried the recommend kb article 918594 and it still doesn't work.

    I recreated the odbc link and still no joy.

    Has anyone come across this and have they a solution I would be grateful.

    Thanks

    Tom
