Unhappy Mail merge, DDE conection, Word 2000 vs 2007


I have some mail merge word document linked with an excel data source.
They were made with word2000 and everything is OK with word2000.

When I open my word document with word2007, I have the following error message :
Word could not re-establish a DDE connection to Microsoft Excel to complete the current task.
However, word open simultaneously the excel source file.

If I first open the excel source file, the word document opens correctly, and the mail merging is functioning.

If anyone knows how to fix it...

Thank you
