Can anyone advise me how to correct this.  I have tried changing the format in MS Access to medium (18-May-10) and it still doesnt come through correctly.

Software/Hardware used:
Microsoft Office Access 2007

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you looked at the formatting in Word, as, if the formatting in Access is correct, then it can only be changed during the transfer into the mail merge fields.

I take it that you are using Word. Whatever word processing software you are using, I’d start there.
