Default How do I resolve Contact folder data source issues?

Working with Word 2007, I created a Word document to use for labels for mail
merges from Outlook. I start the mail merge from Outlook and I get an error
message that the data source has already been populated. When I remove
populated info, the document the "mailing list" tab is greyed out. Any
ideas? ps Word also shows that multiple word doc's are open when in there is
really only one open

Thanks for the help

"Unable to obtain a list of tables from the data source." I've tried
everything and am becoming more frustrated each day. I'd used this feature
many times last year so I know it did work as advertised. It appears as
though something has become out of sync? Any help and/or suggestions will be
appreciated.

Post is far too unclear. State precisely what you are doing and what happens
if you expect us to guess what you're doing wrong.
Clarify what this "Word Document" is. When you start a merge from Outlook,
you usually create the merge document as you go. Trying to use something you
imagine to be a "saved merge document" would certainly generate some errors
like this since it would already has its datasource connected.
Your post would be better off made to the Word mail merge group.
