This usually occurs when there is not enough RAM available. Can you try restarting the computer and ONLY open excel and try it again? Let me know the results please

Follow these steps to reset Office and let me know the results:

  1. Quit all programs.
  2. On the Go menu, click Home > Library. If you have OS X 10.7 (Lion) or above, click Go, hold down the OPTION key and choose Library.
  3. Open the Preferences folder and drag com.microsoft.Word.plist to the desktop. If you can't find the file, continue to the next step.
  4. Now, open the Microsoft folder (in Preferences), and drag com.microsoft.Word.prefs.plist to the desktop.
    Note If you have Service Pack 2 installed, open Application Support > Microsoft instead of Preferences > Microsoft.
  5. Start Word. Do you see the error?
    • No. Quit Word, and drag one of the files back to its default location and test again. If the error re-appears, the file you just dragged back is corrupt. Move it to the Trash. If there's still no error, drag the other file from your desktop to the Trash. Congratulations, this solved the problem.
    • Yes. Quit Word, and restore both files to their original location. Go to the next step.
  6. Quit all programs.
  7. On the Go menu, click Home > Library. If you have OS X 10.7 (Lion) or above, click Go, hold down the OPTION key and choose Library.
  8. Open the Application Support folder, then the Microsoft folder, then the Office folder, and then the User Templates folder.

Did you

(1) try using the wizard from Word to build up the Mail Merge?

(2) try using a different Excel workbook make sure it is not a Excel specific issue?

Thanks.
