Default Merging documents

Whatever happened to the simple way to merge a document in Word? I can't
even find information on it so I will be ever grateful to anyone who can
help me.

I ahve a simple document, with about 10 places where the data changes. It
is not a letter, it is not an email, it is not a fax, nor any of theo ther
documents the merge tries to make you do. The main document is a regular
document with regular information. The variable data is a regular document,
not a database. I believe I can do the main document but I can't figure out
how to do the variable document.

In the main document, I have several fields in several places as follows:
{MERGEFIELD "Email address"} or {MERGEFIELD "Section"} or {MERGEFIELD
"Color"}

My data is similar to the following:


Wall Dividers
Red

I seem to remember a way to enter the above data so that
always
will merge into the Email address field, so you didn't have to worry about
having exactly the right number of data, etc.. Can someone tell me how I'm
supposed to be doing this? Thank you very very much.
