If Publisher XP's mail merge can find data in ACCESS try linking the tables
into an ACCESS database and then tying Publisher to the ACCESS database.

Sounds klunky but it might work.

Thank you all for your responses. 

The reason that I am currently asking about Publisher is that i do
certificates for programs that my organization runs and I am able to
in publisher mail merge the Proper Names of both the recipients and
signatories onto the certificate plus print the wording, graphics and
other content all at once.

with out having to do 2-3 passes through the printer ... a great time
saver when doing 200 certificates

I have the myODBC installed but can not get Publisher XP's mail merge
to get the data.
