Office XP Merge to Fax is disabled

    the Merge to Fax button is greyed out on the toolbar, even
    though I have Fax Service installed in WinXP and set up as
    an email service in Outlook XP.

    When I was using Windows 95 and Office 97, I used to be
    able to place a fax number field in a Word source document
    and populate this field from an Access database. I would
    use the Merge to Fax feature in Word and Microsoft Fax
    would send each individual letter to the appropriate fax
    number for each merged document.

    Has anyone figured out how to get this to work using Win
    XP and Office XP??? I can't believe that a great feature
    like this isn't supported in Windows XP!

    Many thanks!!

  2. There has never been a merge to Fax option with the Win 2K/Win XP Fax
    Service. You have to merge to electronic mail. Outlined here:
