I am trying to figure out why my mail merge in the a Word document is prompting me twice for seemingly two different data sources. Both prompts look like the following:

enter image description here.

The first prompt points the path where my .csv file resides, but then the prompt about appears directly afterwards if I click yes to the first. The picture posted is the 2nd prompt that I receive. What's with the funky name on my SELECT statement and how do I eliminate the second prompt?

Word 2007 copies some types of data source to a local folder. It's part of some security change. Unfortunately it is very difficult to tell in what circumstance Word will do this, but I think it is in essence when Word thinks it is opening a field type data source and it thinks it is on the Internet.

You should apply the registry change as described in the following article.

Hope it helps.
