How can I mail merge with a locked Access DataBase?

We have a help desk inquiry at the moment that I have no idea about. I have attempted several things over the last hour and cannot for the life of me get it working.

Am I able to mail merge a letter in word with fields in a LOCKED Access DataBase?
