Default Automatically Selecting a Data Source

Hello, I have a coworker who is having some issues with her mail merge process. When she clicks on the Word doc that she wants to open, a dialog box pops up saying "Opening this document will run the following SQL command: SELECT * FROM T:\Tools and References\Letter Templates\LetterDatabase.doc" It also asks her if she wants to place the database in the document. By clicking Yes, it opens a browse window where she has to then locate the above file manually. The rest of the people in her department don't have to manually locate the file each time, and yet no one knows why. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Nathan,

Has the co-worker tried selecting 'No' to the second prompt? If so, what happens? Also, has the co-worker tried saving the mailmerge main document after executing the mailmerge? Again, if so, what happens next time it is opened?
