I have a batch of mixed-format data including long-form text fields, hyperlinks, number and plain text in an Excel doc. I have assembled a Word catalog merge file intended to allow me to proof the data manually. There are 42 records.
On merge, the output document results in what appears to be the correct number of pages and records. However, records 28-42 do not appear to place any data in the destination document. [more inside]

Hoping someone can help me sort this problem ...
It's a excel + microsoft word document + mail merge to outlook email to 50 people.
I am trying to help someone out - this is is as it just as it was described to me:
Track changes were accepted and turned off and the email looked as it should - so off went 50 customized emails.
..unfortunately the sent email then shows that all the emails are sent showing all of the tracked change revision markings!
Sorry if this is too vague. Thanks for your efforts :)

Looking for a word/excel mail merge trick that may not exist. Basically, what I'm looking to do is put information from the header row itself into the merge document so that it appears in the merge for each other record. [more inside]

I have a Word merge document with merged variable info sandwiched around a preprinted area in which I want no text - is there a way to insert some sort of break on the page that says to Word "No matter how big section 1 is, don't start printing section 2 until this point"? Thanks for any help! [more inside]

Is there a quick way to create a mail merge directory in Word from an Excel spreadsheet, broken down by a specific field (department, category, etc.)? This seems like a Microsoft 101 question, but the built-in Help doesn't seem to address this specifically, and online help
from Word 2002 gets into code I can't even begin to understand. [more inside]
