I am trying to merge information from Excel into a form letter in word. I know how to mail merge but it will only take information on the first worksheet in the excel workbook. There are 3 worksheets in the document and I need the 3rd one. How do I select a particular worksheet?

Thanks!

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.
What you need to do is make the 3rd sheet the 1st sheet. To do this, click and hold the 3rd sheet tab and drag it in front of the 1st sheet tab. Word will only read the first tab in a workbook.

Alternatively (isn't there almost always a but!) you can name your "data" range on the third sheet. So when you select "Get Data" from Word, specify the Excel file, you should also be able to specify the range name you just created.

Only problem with this is that if you do add data, you must correspondingly reset the range before your merge (else you won't get the new data).

Then again, if you define the range dynamically.... :) But that's a different story :)
