Mail merge Excel 2000 to Word 2000

I am currently creating some labels using the mail merge routine in Word. My original data is in Excel and when I try to create the merge it is taking a very long time whilst using the DDE link, and then just as long to creat the merge.
In the past it has been a reasonably quick process.
I have already uninstalled and reinstalled Office with no better results.
Anybody come accross this problem before?

Can I recommend - select & copy all your Excel file and paste it into a new Word document. It will still be in tables with headers. Then save the file and do a 100% Word MailMerge.
There will only be one application involved so it should be as quick.
