Default Mail merge question ?

The salutation field is being overlooked. When the letters are merged, the
first name field is being used instead. Eg.: Dear Dianne Jackson instead of
Dear Dianne. How do I fix this?

What is the data source? Is there a separate "salutation" field in it?
What does that field contain? What is the name of the mergefield where you
want the salutation to appear?

If there is a salutation field and it contains the right data and it is used
in the right place, you should not be having such a problem. Merge fields
do not just get skipped.

Hope this helps.

Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my
