Default Access 2003 query with wildcards into Word 2003 mail merge

when i use wildcard character (*) as criteria and save a query, and then i want to use the results of that query in a mail merge to Word 2003, Word doesn't show the fields i am using.

it doesn't seem to like the "*" as a wildcard - so, if queries are performed and used with the "*" wildcard, how do i get them to show in a word mail merge - please don't tell me that i have to resave all my queries with a different wildcard, such as "%" - and i have tried this - the query doesn't show in Access then, but it shows only SOMETIMES in a word mail merge - this is driving me crazy!!

i liked office 2000 (yes 2000) much, much better - was cleaner...

thanks for any and all help you can provide on this inquiry!!
