I am doing a Merge Document through programming using BookMarks to Merge the
fields.
My question is that there are a series of records that need to be merged
into this document that are variable in length, meaning there could be any
number of records of this type.
How do I code the BookMarks so that I may repeat the rows as many times as
needed?
Or is there a better way?

See the following page of fellow MVP Graham Mayor’s website:

http://www.gmayor.com/ManyToOne.htm

Or, for more complex, but more capable methods, see fellow MVP Macropod's
"Word 97-2007 Catalogue/Directory Mailmerge Tutorial" at:

http://www.gmayor.com/Zips/Catalogue%20Mailmerge.zip

Do read the tutorial before trying to use the mailmerge document included
with it as you must get the mail merge main document set up exactly as
required.

OK but I am doing this through coding.
I am developing a program in Visual FoxPro to create the merged document.

Hi Dorian,

In that case, create the mailmerge main document in advance with the required layout, then simply use your FoxPro code to open that
and execute the merge.

Yes but my question is how do I handle the Many part of the Merge?

Hi Dorian,

If you read the tutorial, you will find that it has all the details (including field coding) you might need for the 'many' part -
for which you use a mailmerge main document set up for a Catalogue/Directory merge .

If FoxPro has anything like the reporting capability of Access, I would do
it all in FoxPro
