Remove mdb link in Word Document

Actually my .dotx file has a .mdb DB attach to it, to allow users to choose there merge fields from a list.

The problem is, after the mail merge is complete, if my users open there newly merge document, there is still the MSWord message poping informing them that a query will be performed to get the fields list.

I'd like to know if it's possible to remove that link to the mdb file after the merge is complete.

I'll attach my template with the mdb.

HI Jean, 

Thank you for using Syncfusion products. 

Currently DocIO preserves the document settings to attach data source via MS Word as it is in the input document when resaved to same format type. It is not possible to remove “mdb” link using DocIO. We have already logged this requirement as feature request. Currently we don’t have any immediate plan to implement this feature. We will let you know once the feature has been implemented. 

Please let us know if you have any questions.
