Allow mail merge with source files stored on OneDrive
Please support mail merge with source files stored on OneDrive.
For me was a big surprise to not being able to do this, we have some databases that everyone is using and editing at the same time in my company, obviously the file is not "local" so I can't use this function.
Indeed a complete mockery of OneDrive, and vote is closed, i.e. MS is not interested solving it.
Not being able to used shared data store for mail merge functions makes a complete mockery of having shared data storage. This functionality needs to consider two aspects of OneDrive storage - (a) A user's own contents (b) Another user's content shared with the user wanting to do mail merge. Facility needs to be able to have data source and mail merge document (word & Publisher) in OneDirve and to still function when opened 'locally'.
(a) Might be achieved by using a local synch'd copy of the source file, assuming path translation might be supported, however that does not address (b) as another's shared file cannot be synch'd along side ones own ... something which DROPBOX does without issue.
