Subject Re: Java Troubles When Trying to Use Mail Merge
Date Thu, 14 Nov 2013 05:20:00 GMT
Despite Dr. Zarlenga's odd claims, I do believe that it is possible to 
run Java on Windows. I happen to use Linux, so anything that I say is of 
course suspect.

A few questions for you.

1. What version of AOO are you using? 4.x? For version 3.x, you need 
Java 6, for AOO 4, you can use 7.
2. What vesrion of Java. Note that I believe that AOO can only use a 
32-bit version of Java, not a 64-bit version.
3. Somewhere under Tools > Options .... you can tell AOO where your Java 
is installed. This must be set I believe. I cannot check the actual path 
at the moment (since I don't have AOO installed on the machine I am 
using now).

There are some comments here:

previously removed Java from my computer because of the problems with it.  Anyway, I reinstalled
it to try and get Mail Merge to work.  Unfortunately, I still can't complete the merge.  It
can't seem to find Java.  I am using Windows 7, 64-bit.  Thank you in advance for anything
you can do for me.
