Default Create mail merge using multiple contacts in a single letter

I would like to create a mail merge in Word 2003 where my data source is an
Act! 2008 database. My database consists of company records and multiple
contact records associated with each company record. I would like to send a
letter to each company with all of their individual contacts listed within
the letter. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

You are trying to perform a "multiple items per condition (=key field)"
mailmerge which Word does not really have the ability to do:

See the "Group Multiple items for a single condition" item on fellow MVP

Or take a look at the following Knowledge Base Article
