Default Mailmerge fields cutting off text

I am trying to mailmerge a catalogue from an excel spreadsheet. Some of the
fields are quite long but some (but not all) fields are cutting off at 255
characters. Does anyone know how I can rectify this?
Thank you

Default Mailmerge fields cutting off text

Hi ?B?Sm9Dbw==?=,

I am trying to mailmerge a catalogue from an excel spreadsheet. Some of the
fields are quite long but some (but not all) fields are cutting off at 255
characters. Does anyone know how I can rectify this?

For the quickest response you should ask this in the word.mailmerge.fields
newsgroup. Be sure to mention the *version* of Word involved in the problem.

As best I can recall, this has to do with using an older connection method
that was designed at the time Excel had a 255 character limit in its cells.
You need to use a different connection method to the Excel data source.

But without knowing which version of Office is involved I can't give you any
specific information about how to do this.
