Maniplulating the data source location of a merge

I have created a merge in MS Word which uses a text file as its data source.

When I start the document, and review the merge details, it shows the Data Source as Data: C:\folder1\data.txt

However, I want to transport the Word and data.txt file which could end up on another drive/folder location (but always with the Word and data.txt in the same place, not separated).

What I really want is Data: ..\data.txt so it looks inside the current folder.

Is this possible please?
