How to use Extended Mail Merge

We have Windows 7 and Office 10, so I was advised to request extended mail merge.  It has been enabled but I am still having problems getting a merge document to work.  Is Connect for Office suppose to work now that we have this function?  I tried manually putting the merge fields in, uploaded the document, but that did not work either.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Kristy
