Mail Merge from Excel to Word


Board Regular
May 23, 2007
I have been using Excel to instigate a mail merge for the last few years. I have just bought a new laptop and downloaded the files (Office 365 cloud based) and now the macros are playing up.
It appears to be the file path. I normally click in File Explorer to store the macro files on my pc but this is no different to before.

Can anyone throw any light on this?
Is there a versioning issue?
I have included the whole code but have highlighted the area where the code is failing. I am getting the message of Object not found. I have recopied the paths in case there were minor differences.
The same thing is happening on another macro as well and it is the file path that is causing the macro to fail so hopefully it is something simple that will rectify all the macros.
Any guidance gratefully received.

VBA Code:
Option Explicit
Dim FilePath As String
Dim coursedate As Date
Dim coursename As String
Dim companyname As String
Dim filename As String
Dim EmailSubject As String

'Dim fn As String
Dim email As String
Dim emailcc As String
Dim xOutlookObj As Object
Dim xEmailObj As Object
'Dim FilePath
Dim OApp As Object, OMail As Object
Dim signature As String
Dim Email_To As String
'Dim EmailSubject As String
Dim OpenPDFAfterCreating As Boolean, AlwaysOverwritePDF As Boolean, DisplayEmail As Boolean
Dim PDFFILE As String

Sub CreateEvalsMailMerge()
coursedate = Range("f2")
coursename = Range("J2")
companyname = Range("H2")
'This is the path where your certificate is stored (the word document)
FilePath = "C:\Users\mkd\OneDrive - Grapevine Computing\Tutoring\Course Materials\Lesson Files\AuxcillaryDocs"
