Access 2003/Word 2007 mail merge

Access 2003/Word 2007 mail merge

I have a database written in Acc-2003 which executes a mail merge. We enter account numbers in a work table, populate the table with the customers names and addresses (Access), and then open an instance of word through code and merge the access table with the word document. All was working well for the past 3 years. The customer has recently switched to Word 2007, and now when we call the Word document from Access, a Read-only file is opened and we can not perform the merge. Has anyone encountered this, how did you get around it? Thanks
