Limiting text to one line by Mark
The main document that we use for a mail merge has a line for the name of the company. This name merges from the database. How do I get the company name to only fit on the one line regardless of length, within reason?

make mailmerge leave blanks when fields are empty by Jenny hall
Mailmerge kindly moves fields together when there are blanks (like in a short address). Does anyone know how to stop this so the balnks are retained? Also, does anyone know how to ensure that a field defined in Excel as text, but containing mainly numbers, is treated by Word as text. At the...

I have formatted my excel spreadsheet with highlighting and text color. However, when I mail merge data from my excel spreadsheet to make labels, none of the formatting transfers- only the data. Is it possible to merge the colors too?

How to merge a graphic from a Exel spreadsheet to a Word document by drbob.bb
I have 2 graphics (a screw head and a drive, eg phillips, or slot or hex) that I thought would be cute on my drawer labels. They didn't merge. Can I somehow make my document layout more ready to accept graphics, or maybe I should just put the graphics on the labels before i merge to them.
