Access merge query dialog box pops up TWICE

Access merge query dialog box pops up TWICE

Access merge query dialog box pops up TWICE

I have several Word merge documents (templates) linked to an Access query that pulls a record from an Access database to fill in various fields in the document. When I choose file/new in Word, and choose the appropriate template, Access fires up just fine, but the query "parameter" dialog box pops up TWICE, one right after the other. And it seems to require that you supply the proper parameter both times in order for the merge to work. Anybody know *why* it pops up twice? Anybody know *how* to suppress one of them and still have the merge work properly??

p.s.- this is Word and Access '97
