2008 R2 DFS and Office 2003 Mail Merge Problem.
We are just having 2008 R2 Servers installed and have run across a problem with DFS. Were hoping to use it for shared areas which is fine. We have Microsoft Office 2003 installed across the school and it doesn't seem to let us open a mail merge document from it, we get the error "Word cannot find its data source" .
The same document in the same location mapped directly to the server share rarther than the dfs share works perfectly.
Anyone come accross this, it looks to me like office 2003 needs a patch but I can't see anything. Has anyone come accross and fixed this? Re-doing the mail merge documents or installing Office 2010 isn't really an option at the mo.

Did you ever resolve this?
Having the same issue?
Any help would be appreciated.

We decided to leave the DFS in place (So replication happens accross sites for a bit of resiliancy) but directly map to specific sites for each user depending on their "home" site. So no real answer i'm afraid.

Every little helps.
Even when i directly map to the server share i seem to still be getting an error.
Looks like this is going to be a tough cookie!
Thanks for your help though
