Mail Merge Problem by Cindy M -WordMVP-
Hi George, I've never seen this in the standard Word mail merge, so it may well be a Works-specific problem. Works does use an Addin to mail merge with Word. Best ask in a WORKS newsgroup. I use MS Works V. 8 and I am trying to send a letter to multiple recipients using mail merge. I have...

Leading spaces in Mail Merge field not printing by Cindy M -WordMVP-
Hi =?Utf-8?B?S3VydCBNb25yb2U=?=, I am using an Excel spreadsheet as my data source. My problem - if the Excel cell has leading spaces in it (spaces on the left), they do not carry over to the merge field in the Word document. This is standard, and by design. The only data source where...

merging to email does not work by Cindy M -WordMVP-
Hi =?Utf-8?B?Q2hhcmxpZQ==?=, It could very well be due to the different version numbers. But your best bet to get a knowledgeable answer would be in an OUTLOOK newsgroup. FWIW, in my experience, the email-merge won't work if Outlook can't recognize the email addresses as being "valid". I am...
