I am trying to use the OFFICELINKS function in Access97 to merge a query to a Word doc. When I try to connect the query to the document using the DataLink Properties window, I get an error "Test connection failed because of an error initializing provider. Cannot start application. The workgroup file is missing or opened exclusively by another user". The problem is that I am using a secured database and there is no place I can find in the DataLink properties windows to enter the location of the .MDW file the database is using. How can I resolve this?
