mail merge with MS Word and MS Works

Does anyone know how to merge these two? My client address list is in MS Works spreadsheet, but it won't merge with MS Word.

Thanks.

Try moving the letter from word into the works word proccesor Then copy and paste the spreadsheet into a list form of the works database.
Then you should be able to merge.
