Mail merge has been running very slow as of late. It can take over one hour
to print 200 letters. Is this normal or is there something I missed.

Hi =?Utf-8?B?V2FsdGVy?=,

to print 200 letters. Is this normal or is there something I missed.

I wouldn't call it normal, no... But a lot of things can affect mail merge. If
you tell us the version of Word, the type of data source, the number of fields
it contains, any filters you may have set, and (if you know) the connection
method used to link in the data, we MIGHT be able to make some observations
and/or suggestions.
