Let me think:
- Does this work the same with other users?
- Is this by design?
- Can I change the behavior?
- I hate this, so does anybody know a mail-merge tool that reads xlsx-files without me typing in the extension?
- Will this be corrected in SP1?
Or still something else?
Microsoft Word Mail Merge launches a file converter when using Excel files as the data source. Nothing new about that. However, when using Mail Merge in Word 2008 and an Excel xlsx file as data source under OS X 10.6, the file converter will not recognize the file unless the extension .xlsx is actually appended to the file name. The file converter used by Word 2008 still recognizes xls files with or without the extension appended, as did the file converter used by Word X.
