Default Merging Word with Excel

I am working with Mail Merge and my Word document cannot open the Excel file (.xls) that I need. I am using Word and Excel 2010 on Windows 8. What might be the answer to this problem?

Thank you for responding Charles. But I seem to have sorted it out. I recreated the Excel file with the thought that the first might have been corrupted in some way. It worked. I was successful with the merge.
