How to print double side postcards, multiple pages per sheet, while mail merging?

When mail merging with a postcard template in Publisher 2007, and printing multiple postcards per page (4), how do I get four different records on one page, rather than a page full of the same record?

I created a post card using one of the blank postcard templates. I use the mail merge option and insert an address block. When I go to print I have the option for multiple copies per page. But, this just makes multiple copies of one record per sheet. I'd like to print off a large number of postcards, doing four per 8.5"x11" sheet.

When printing I have two different options, print multiple copies and multiple pages. Printing multiple pages would work, except that I'm working with a two sided postcard. Doing 4 pages per sheet puts two front side and two back sides on the front of one sheet.

I could have two separate publisher files, one printing the front side w/ the mail merge, and one with the back side. But I'd rather not if there is a way around this.

Any help is appreciated.

I don't know Publisher, but I'd try setting up your postcard template 4-up on 8-1/2 x 11 myself rather than relying on the automatic setup to do that step.

I run into the same problem. If I do four up, there isn't a way that I know of to add a «Next Record» field manually to the next three postcards on the page.
