Mail Merge Active Directory to Microsoft Word (MS Office 2010) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Once I go into MS word I select Mailings at the top, then Start Mail Merge, then step by step Mail Merge Wizard, I select Directory as the document type, and then click next at the bottom, at this point it asks how i want to set up my document and I might have to select start a template at some point but i think what is most important and crucial to this process is the next step, which would be step 3, so as i just select use current document and hit next at the bottom, select recipients........

                                          Now i select recipients using an existing list- and click browse , a window appears, i select new source, again the goal is to pull information from active directory, a data connection wizard appears, i select other/advanced, then for data link properties i select from the list "OLE DB Provider for Microsoft Directory Services" This is as far as i can get with this project, i don't know what to enter for the data source other than what i have tried so far which has been the domain name (server name) of our Active Directory which once i try that and select Use windows NT integrated security, i get an error. I need to know what to enter into the data source and location and if its possible to use windows NT integrated security.
