Default How to hide repeated text in mailmerge

I am preparing a zip sorted address list as
zip lname, fname
When there are repeated zips, I want the subsequent ones hidden.
How do I hide these?
I'm using Word 2003

Default How to hide repeated text in mailmerge

Hi Al,

What you need is a Catalogue/Directory mailmerge with sorted data. To see how to do this, check out my tutorial at:
http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/show...?Number=731107
Do read the tutorial before trying to use the mailmerge document included with it.
