Data Base engine errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a <g class="gr_ gr_16 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del" data-gr-id="16" id="16">mailmerge</g> with a Windows 10 word document and an excel spreadsheet.  The spreadsheet merges but if I try to filter the recipient list it tells me An operation cannot be completed because of database engine errors.  I can get around this by checking each recipient that I want.  The merge then works.  Why can't I filter my data?

  • Hi,

    I would like to know where you saved the Excel file for mail merge, local computer or other cloud storage. What's the detailed filter setting did you use?

    Please provide the detailed steps about the mail merge processing and edit recipient list filters, then we can follow the steps in our side for more analysis.

    Also collect the detailed Word version numbers in your side: In Word, click File > Account > About Word.

    Best Regards,
    Winnie Liang
