I am using Microsoft Office 2013. I have mail merge documents set up in Word that are linked to an Access query via DDE. The problem I am having is that when I open the mail merge document it takes a long time and then I get an Office error. When I click on the close button the error goes away and the document opens and works fine.

The error reads:

Something went wrong

We couldn't start your program. Please try starting it again.

If it won't start, try repairing Office from 'Programs and Features' in the Control Panel.

Does anyone know what to do to stop this error?
