I'm attempting to use the mail merge wizard to merge envelopes using and Excel file. Everything works fine until I come to an envelope that goes outside the US. I have a field set up for Country and when I go through the Match Fields box under Optional Information, that field is selected. However, it never prints the country. The country does add a sixth line to the address. Is this the problem and, if so, is there any way to get it to recognize more than five lines in an address?

Another problem that is not major but bothersome. I have over 300 names on the Excel list but am printing envelopes only for the first 190. Is there any way other than selecting Clear All and going in and selecting each envelope ONE BY ONE to get it to print only the first portion of the list?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello -

First off I just want to say I'm new to the forum...you guys have a great group and great info here!! I'm looking forward to being a part of it...

Now to my problem - I'm having some issues with the mail merge function in MS World 2002.

First, when I have a Table of Contents in the Main Document and merge to a new Document, the entire Table of Contents turns into hyperlinks instead of remaining a regular Table of Contents. I tried deleting the \h switch from the TOC field code but no luck. Any ideas what to do? btw- i never had this problem when I was using Word 2000.

Second and more important problem. When I have cross references in my Main Document (For example a cross reference in Section 12, saying refer to Section 2 which is hyperlinked) the cross references go hard after the document is merged, meaning they are no longer "shaded" and "hyperlinked". Any ideas how to retain the coding so cross references stay cross references even in the merged document?

Thanks in advance guys!

One of the problems your going to face is getting labeled as a spammer. If your sending these internally it may not be a problem. The standard answer for this is to Outsource this if your sending over 100. Good decision not to launch the real one yet.

Maybe the Office 2002 gurus out there can direct me to a solution to this pesky problem...
When I try a mail merge to make mailing labels with Word 2002, I always use my Outlook contacts for the data.

However, Word always gives me an error message that says that Outlook is not configured as the defualt mail client. It instructs me to make the changes in Outlook and to try again.

I've been in Outlooks Tools menu, as the help files tell me, and have checked the settings, and made sure the box is checked to configure Outlook as the defualt email program, but Word behaves the same.

Any suggestion?

We started by creating a Mailing Label template using the Mailing Label
Wizard in Word. The fields we set up were:
First Name
Last Name
Company
Street Address
City
State/Province
Postal Code
Then we went to Outlook and chose View by Category. We then highlighted all names in the category we wanted to merge. Then we tried to merge using
these commands:

Tools
Mail Merge
Only Selected Contacts
All Contact Fields
Existing Document - (We browsed to the Word template we had set up)
OK

This opened up a Word screen as asked us if we wanted to Merge now which we clicked on and selected Merge in the next screen too.
Upon selecting Merge the second time, an "Invalid Merge Field" screen opened
up with these options:

This merge field is used in the main document, but it does not exist in the
data source: State/Province
Postal Code

Options were to Remove Field (which we don't want to do) or
Replace with a valid merge field from data source.

If we selected the second option we could enter State and ZIPPostal Code but had to do this for EVERY label (30 times) and then it would work, but we
couldn't figure out how to change our template to read this way, because
when we tried to do that it reverted back to the standard fields in Word
which are not recognized in Outlook.

In other words when we did step 2 and entered the fields in the create labels template box and editing the fields in that step they converted back to standard fields.
Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.... Read more

I have recently upgraded to Office 2010 (from 07) and I perform a lot a mail merges. I have come across a few issues with this feature within 2010 and wondered if anyone has a solution. I am obviously running Windows 7.

Issue 1 - When performing the mail merge to emails (HTML), Word 2010 doesn't seem to recognise my IMAP email account, which is set as default in Outlook 10 it uses one of my other pop email accounts.
Is there any way to set my IMAP account as the default for mail merging?

Issue 2 - Once I have completed the email merge I then need to create them as a PDF, which in 2007 worked fine but the Acrobat addin in Word 10 doesn't do anything. (I do have Acrobat 8 prof installed as well) I have done a little research and can see that this is a problem but I need a solution to fix.
Otherwise I'll be reduced to uninstalling and re-install 2007!

This fixes the problem of having word show an empty address book from Outlook Contact folder when doing a mail/merge in Word.

1. I went to Outlook, clicked on Tools, then Email Accounts, then View or Change Existing Directories or Address Books

2. I then highlighted Outlook Address Book and clicked on Change

3. I then removed each address book listed, clicked on close, clicked on finish.

4. I then went to each Contacts Folder and right mouse clicked and selected the Properties option.

5. I then clicked on the Outlook Address Book tab

6. I put a check mark in the "Show this folder as an email address book"

Prior to all this each contact folder already had this checked. So God only knows why this issue existed but it did.

After doing these 6 steps I went to do a mail merge in word and selected the Contact Folder that had been showing up empty before. It no longer was empty.

Hello,
I was earlier having problems with my Outlook 2002. I was getting a cryptic error message when I try to download my email messages (typical Microsoft). I googgled the error message and found that my *.pst and *.ost file was at maximum. I had to Shift+Delete messages I don't need. I tried to this but get another error message. Again I googled for answers and found that I should make another email account from the control panel. This worked but did not fix the problem, I just avoided it. In the process, I "lost" all the old email messages I need by creating a new email account. The account set up is exactly the same as the original account setup.

The thing is, I had to get an old message from the original account. I did this and found that the problem I had that prevented me from shift+deleting was fixed! I was able to shift+delete unwanted email messages.

This now created a new problem. As I used a new email account, I have my email in two different email account set-up.

What I would like to do is merge the *.pst and *.ost files (and any other files) together so I get all the email messages in under one account set-up.

I only use one email address, I just had two email account set-up with the same details (smpt, pop3, logon name, password)

Is there a way to merge (if this is the right terminology) the relevant files?
Please let me know if what I wrote does not make sense.

Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Outlook 2002 *.pst *.ost files can I merge them?

Outlook 2002(Part of the Office XP suite) and earlier use a format of PST files which are hard-coded to stop at 2GB. You can import the mail into an Outlook 2003 PST if the 2GB is too small.(this requires you to always use 2003 or higher client going forward) I suggest getting your hands on Outlook2003, or even 2007, because it really gives you alot more options and features. (and flexibility of your mailbox)

Inside of outlook under the File Menu in Outlook 2002, do you see an Import/Export item?

If you select that it will open the import/export wizard. Then you say Import>From Another Program Or File>Personal Folder File

then you find the old PST file. You then have an opportunity to tell it where in your outlook folder structure you want it to dump the data. I suggest selecting the top level in both of the PST's and tell it to copy subfolders, so it will move everything to the same folder in the new PST. Keep in mind if the old PST is 2GB you're going to run into the same file size restriction quickly if you're still using the same version.

Hi All,

I am trying to do an e-mail merge from a database that is saved on my hard drive.

According to the help files in WORD 2000, I should be able to do this, similar to sending form letters, only e-mail instead.

I can get everything set up and working, right up to the Merge dialog box, but all I have to select for Merge To, is 'New Document,' or 'Printer.' According to the WORD 2000 help files, there should be an option called 'Electronic Mail.' There is not, and I don't know why. I am apparently missing something, but I can't figure it out.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated. Any thoughts as to what else I may run into--difficulty wise--would be appreciated also.

I'm having some trouble printing a mail merge document from Word 97. Here are the details:

1. The document is formatted such that 3 form letters can fit on a single 8.5X11 piece of paper (each form letter is 3.6 inches tall, thus I want to print three on a single sheet of paper and will later cut it into thirds).

2. Each form letter has text and a graphic common to each letter (thus a "form" letter) and fields of unique data imported using the Mail Merge option on the TOOLS menu.

I am able to get the merge to occur, however it results with a single form letter per page, hence two-thirds of each printed page is wasted space. If I delete the page-break that appears on each page, I am able to get all three form letters on a single page, however I end up losing some of the formatting graphics.

Can anyone offer some suggestions of how to proceed?

What is the quickest way to create a mail merge in Word 97.
 

A:Word 97 Mail Merge

Some pointers:

I personally prefer using Excel as my data source (get data, change files of type to Excel). The mail merge helper will actually use a Word table as the data source (create data source) if you follow through the steps.

Regardless, your column headings in the data source need to be in row 1 and the first record of data must be in row 2.

Follow the steps in the mail merge helper. Generally, you'll use "active document" when prompted, except when performing the actual merge--use new document.

When you've put the codes into the letter, labels, etc., I suggest testing it (use the <<abc>> button on the mail merge toolbar), and then saving it as a template. Close it, hit file-new whenever you want to use that merged letter, label, etc.

Recognize that you're creating two files. The data source (put "data" into the name somewhere) and the coded file (put "merge" in the name somewhere).

Check here, if you can. 2000 and 97 are virtually the same when it comes to mail merge: http://support.microsoft.com/servicedesks/Webcasts/WC110200/wcblurb110200.asp?

Hey Guys,

I have an end user who is needing to set up word 2007 mail merge. She is drawing her list of recipients from our SQL server database. She is needing to place up to nine names into a 3x3 table, with one name per cell. Our problem is that some of the schools she is doing this for don't have nine people. So not all nine cells are filled. Now the problem this causes is that when one page doesn't fill all of the cells word starts grabbing names that are supposed to be on the next page (school) and using them to fill the partially filled chart. This is a huge problem because each page is a different school with different Board members. So I need to figure out a way to separate the charts so that each page's chart is filled according to the School name that is pulled from the database. She is currently having to do a separate merge for each school, we have 56 different schools. And it is an extreme hassle for her. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Also if you need me to clarify anything, please send me a message.

Board='Board'!$A1!Bx17 etc
Any help would be appreciated, please cc the email to
[email protected] as I will be working on this tonite at home too.
Thanks

A:Excel/Word Mail Merge

Dear TSGF: No one ever answered my post, so I assume, as is always dangerous, that no one knew the answer. However, I figured it out even though it is not intuitively obvious from the MS standpoint! Here's the answer to my own question"

If you do not have Excel ODBC Drivers, Please install them in this way :

1) Click on Start --> Settings --> Control Panel

2) Select 'Data Sources (ODBC)' and press Enter key.

3) Goto 'System DSN' tab (3rd tab out of 7 tabs) in the "ODBC Data Source Administrator" dialog box.

4) Click on ADD.

5) Select 'Driver do Microsoft Excel (*.xls)' from select driver list box.

6) Click on Finish

Now you will see 'ODBC Microsoft Excel Setup' dialog box.

7) Type a name in 'Data Source Name' and click OK.

Now, Microsoft Excel ODBC Drivers are installed onto your system.

NOTE : You must install Excel ODBC Drivers prior to using mail merge facility.The Microsoft Excel ODBC driver must already be installed.

NOTE: In the Select Table dialog box, you will see all the tables in the workbook, not just the ones from the first sheet.

To connect to Excel using ODBC, follow these steps:

1) From the Get Data list, click Open Data Source.

2) Locate and select the Microsoft Excel file. In the Open Data Source dialog box, make sure that the Select Method check box is selected.

3) Click Open.

4) In the Confirm Data source dialog box, select "Excel Files via ODBC (*.xls)... Read more

I'm trying to build a database to use just the labels option of the "mail merge" feature of WORD.
However, in my home edition of XP, I don't have excel. So, to create a database of companies, addresses and towns I was going to use a WORD table to become my database for mail merge to "draw" from.
When I went to create mailing labels from this document (a WORD table) I got an error message that says Microsoft Works does not recognize this database.

Also, I tried to enter each address singly to create a single label, when I went to adjust the column and row it would not let me, hence creating typed text over and over on the same mailing label(?). Help?

Can someone advise me on how to create approx. 300 different mailing labels.

Thank you very much,

"Microsoft Works"??

What are you really using? Word or WORKS?

Use the TAB key to get to the next table cell in labels in Word, but not sure how to help if it turns out you're using Works.

Anyway, to answer your last question, let me know exactly what program we're running here and what version. See Help-About...

I am working in Microsoft Office Word 2010 on a 64 Bit Windows 7 OS. I am using Mail Merge. I am trying to make it so that if Field24 is not blank, that field will just populate. Otherwise, I need the system to look at the date the document is generated, i.e. today's date. If the date is 1/1 to 12/24, I need it to print "{ DATE \@ "yy" }-CH-". Otherwise (12/25 - 12/31), I need a prompt to pull up.

I have tried:
{ IF { MERGEFIELD Field24 } = "" "{IF {DATE \@ "MMdd" } < "1225" "{FILLIN "Case No.:" \o \d "13-CH" }" "{ MERGEFIELD Field24 }" }

And as a test:
{ IF { MERGEFIELD Field24 } = "" "{IF {DATE \@ "yyyyMMdd" } < "20121225" "{FILLIN "Case No.:" \o \d "13-CH" }" "{ MERGEFIELD Field24 }" }

I am having no issues if Field24 is populated. However, if Field24 is blank, nothing is pulling through with either of the above coding. Now, I am sure this is something I am doing, but there are several instances where what prints will be based on a date. Is it possible to do this, without delving into Macros (an area where I am completely clueless...)?

Update:

I found a little more information here: http://www.gmayor.com/formatting_word_fields.htm
Below is what the site has to say on the matter. It seems to agree with what I've done. I even tried to change my DATE field to a regular MERGEFIELD populated with a date and that did not work either. I do not understand what I am doing wrong here.
Testing for events that occur before or after a certain date

When running a mail merge, you may want to test for events that happen before or after a certain date. Mail merge does not convert dates to numbers, so if you cannot automatically derive a date number from the date in the data file, as you could in (say) Excel, a different plan is called for.
Let's say the date comes into Word in the format d/MM/yyyy or 1/10/2002 (1st October 2002) from a MERGEFIELD called Start_Date. In this example, we are looking to identify records with Start_Date entries before 1st October 2002.

The above would appear the logical check, but the check treats the date as a number and identifies that number as 1, which is the first part of the number before the slash '/'. All dates other than the first of the month will be greater than 1, so all will produce the result "False".
We therefore need to display the date in numbers that represent the date in a unique way by using the date mask yyyyMMdd which displays the date as a series of digits for year month and finally day, without any breaks. This is a number that the condi... Read more

Hello,

I am formating a letter through Microsoft Word 2007 using Mail Merge. This is the layout I am using:

«FirstName» «MiddleInitial» «LastName»«Comma»«Suffix»
«Company»
«Title»
«Address1» «Address2»
«Address3»
«City» «State_Abbr», «Postal_Code»

They all have Mergefield in the brackets with \b" " at the end of the bracket. The problem I am having is that a space appears in front of "FirstName" throwing off the alignment.

Is there a code or something I can put before to fix this??

Thank You!!!!!

Welcome to the forum. I would check the FirstName field in your datasource to make sure you do not have a leading space within it. If so just delete them and you should be fine.

Hi I am just trying to learn how to mail merge with word 2010

I start Word then click on Mailings, then click on start mail merge, then click on envelopes, then select the size of envelope, then select recipients, and all works ok except the address block is almost at the bottom of the envelope no matter what setting I use.

I know I can grab this address block and move it anywhere.

But is there not a way to make the default position higher on the envelope please

Also I see using this method it prints the City County and post code on the same line

Is there a better way to select addresses and print without having to alter every ones position please

Been having a problem with editing the recipient list in mail merge. When I go to save the edited list, I get one of two errors- a "read only" error if saving to a network drive, or a "insufficient permission" if saving to a local drive.

I've been able to duplicate this problem on multiple machines, with multiple files in both the .doc and docx. format. The data files are tables in Word, I have not tried duplicating the issue with Excel or Access datasources.

Of course, I have made sure the data files are not actually read only...

Thanks,

Michael

One of my colleagues at Work has discovered that following an upgrade from Word 97 to Word XP, the Data Source fields within Mail Merge no longer show the field's contents in full. Instead only half of the sentence is visible in the right hand pane. Then, when she selects the source to add it to the document, it is still only showing half of it. This did not used to happen with Word 97.

Question:

Is there a way of increasing a fields character length, so that the full intended sentence or data to be merged shows up after adding it to the document ? If so please advise on how this can be done.

Many Thanks

Anton

I am running MS Office 2003 and am trying to create a Word macro to open a main document with an attached data source, execute a merge and save the resulting document. I just get an error message: " Run time error 5852, Requester object is not available". I have been able to create a macro to execute a merge and save the resulting document on a main document that I open normally but not when opened by the macro itself. What am I doing wrong?
