Default Mailmerge data displays improperly

I have a simple Access DB that has similar fields, each of which uses a
lookup table to select the specific data. Each of the related tables has
only two fields: the Key (autonumber) and the list of items. When I
mailmerge the master table into Word to print certificates, the key number
from each field prints instead of the associated data item. How do I get the
specific data items to print rather than its associated ID (Key) number?

You probably need to create a query in Access to display the data that you
want included in the merge and then use that query as the data source.

Hope this helps.
