I am using word 11.2 for mac. The mail merge has a built in filemaker import wizard. You create your labels, then get data source and one choice is filemaker pro file. However when it browses the desktop for my filemaker file, it is right there but greyed out and not available. Has anyone seen this or had this work successfully. does it involve upgrading to filemaker 8? I was able to get the data into excel and then from excel into word, but it took several extra steps and some reformatting.

FileMaker names merge files with a .mer extension, and tab delimited files with a .tab extension. Word doesn't recognize either extension. Rename the file so it has a .txt extension and it'll work OK. You can rename it either in FileMaker during the Export, or in the Finder.
