problem sending Access data to Word MailMerge

Using Access 2003 the following code used to work.  The user would click a 
button, Word and then the MailMerge original doc would open, and then the 
user would have to select which table in the database held their required 
data.  The table was created in the code immediately preceding the MailMerge 
coding below, and the TableName is stored in the string field strTable.

++++  start of code
        Dim objWord As Word.Document
        Set objWord = GetObject(gstrMergeDocument_ACTION_PLAN, 
        objWord.Application.Visible = True
        objWord.MailMerge.OpenDataSource Name:=CurrentDb.Name, 
LinkToSource:=True, Connection:="TABLE " & strTableName
++++  end of code

This had been working for several months, but now the processing only opens 
the Word MailMerge original document, without giving the user the facility to 
select the table.  Access now gives an error on the CommandButton coding, 
number -2147417851

I have amended the coding adding

sqlstatement:="select * from [" & strTableName & "]"

after the Connection parameter.  This does what is wanted, filling the doc 
with the table information, making it more user friendly (they do not have to 
select their table"

Were we just lucky that the original coding worked for that period of time, 
or is there something deeper which I need to investigate?
Thanks in advance, Jill C

Access 97 executables and other versions of Access
I have a few questions regarding Access 97 and other versions of Access as we don't have time to develop .net versions of our Access 97 databases and some of our users are moving to other versions of Office/Access - I work for a local authority hence we tend to be very slow in moving to newer technology! We've tried converting our Access 97 databases (lots of front end forms) into Access 2000 but they fail and we don't want to install two versions of Access due to having our applications delivered via Novell to the user (PC's are locked down). Do we need to purchase...

Outlook not sending messages from correct POP3 account
I am a tech support person, supporting several companies from my home. Therefore, I have several pop3 email accounts setup on my computer in Outlook. When I reply to an email, I need to make sure that the correct account shows up in the "From" field. This works for some messages, but for others, the email is sent from the wrong account (making me look real bad :-)). This happens even when it says it's going to be sent from the correct account, if I check the sent items afterward, I'll see that it was sent from the wrong account.
