make mailmerge leave blanks when fields are empty by Jenny hall

merging highlighted data from excel by betzp
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.

I'm using an excel data list and want to merge it to Word labels. It looks good at first glance, but then I noticed that one label is missing at the end of each page. They are included on the data list - just skipped in the merge. I think there is a code or a switch I'm missing on my form...
