Default Split a mail merge document into individual documents

Hi,

I have downloaded the macro to enable me to split my mail merge document but
the macro appears not to run when i complete the mail merge and when i press
ok, nothing happens and it continues to run the mail merge as normal.

Any suggestions?

Many Thanks, Jen

However, that is NOT a solution to what was originally desired, which was to
create a separate document for each record in the data source.

Sometimes non-techie solutions just don't cut it.

There is actually a much easier route you can go that uploading an add-in.
See simple instructions below. You just need to replace the section breaks
with page breaks and viola!

1) Go to Find/Replace
2) Click on More
3) Click "Special"
4) Find "Section Break"
5) Replace with "Manual page break" and click ok

Now you'll be able to save/print whichever pages you want.

I think that the \\ may be causing a problem.

Is it because I have spaces in my folder names? The file names

have spaces, but maybe that doesn't translate to folder names.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Which macro? From your description it seems you may mean the add-in at
http://www.gmayor.com/individual_merge_letters.htm
Have you followed the instructions to the letter? Is the add-in stored in
the correct folder? Have you started Word from the start menu and not from a
document?

Hi
I am not very technically inclined but I can generally help myself but I am
currently stumped. I have tried to make the change to the macro as described
below and I keep getting a message that the project is unviewable. I am
using Office 2007. The add-in works very well but instead of a single page
document I have three pages. Please help...

Thank you for your "splitmergeletter" macro - it really helps - except for
one thing - formatting is coorect when I merge to new doc - it changes the
font only when I execute your macro??!!

Why?

The original letter is in Arial, the resulting letters are in Arial, the
split letters are in Times New Roman - and as there is a specific look on
the
page - eg letterhead also in Arial, we want to preserve the original look.

Thank you for your help.

You will need to use FileOpen, and then navigate to the Word Startup folder
and open the template that contains the code. Then while you have the
template open, you will be able to access the code in it to make the change.

Default Split a mail merge document into individual documents

I installed your add-in (for 2007) earlier this week and it worked like a
charm. But, when I tried to use it again today, it completed the merge as
normal, without splitting the documents. I opened Word before Outlook and
used the Start menu to do so. I even tried reinstalling the add-in to make
sure it is the most current version (in case it was updated in the past 3
days). None of that fixed the problem. The database is an Excel spreadsheet.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Default Split a mail merge document into individual documents

The mail merge function can be fussy if you choose a selection of records -
and particularly if you don't choose the first record. Does it work if you
merge all the records.

If you close Word and Outlook, are there any ghost versions of Winword.exe
left running (CTRL+ALT+DEL Processes). If there are close them before
trying again.

Hello. I found your Mail Merge Split Document macro and I was testing it with a rather large mail merge (using Office 2010). I noticed something that I wanted to change and I did a Ctrl + Break and 'Ended' the macro. I changed the spacing of the merge document and saved as the default for only that document (not to normal.dotm). I tried running the macro again and now a window appears that is labeled, 'Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications - MMtoDocs(2010) Ver 2.2 [break].


I have tried recreating the default template for MS Word, normal.dotm and that didn't work. I imagine that the change I made to the document affected the macro. I get the VBA window with any mail merge letter that I try running the macro with. If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.


I must add that it was working great until I created this problem!

With Word not running, move the file from the Word Startup folder into your

modifying it, you will then need to save it and move it back into the
Startup folder and restart Word.

Thank you for your "splitmergeletter" macro - it really helps - except
for
one thing - formatting is coorect when I merge to new doc - it changes
the
font only when I execute your macro??!!

Why?

The original letter is in Arial, the resulting letters are in Arial,
the
split letters are in Times New Roman - and as there is a specific look
on
the
page - eg letterhead also in Arial, we want to preserve the original
look.

Thank you for your help.

individual documents to save each letter in a separate place?

I adjusted how I was using tabs in my merge template and no longer need to adjust the code. Thank you to Doug and Graham for their posting in this forum and others. Looks like I have just saved my team tremendous time every day copying data from Access to Word for creating individual faxes.
