Default merge document with columns and page number in header resets

I have a merge primary document with columns. I have set the formatting in
the header to continue from previous section for my page numbers. e.g. 1 of
4. It works fine in my primary document if I add pages...however, when I
merge the document, the header is reset to "restart numbering at 1". I dont'
want that!!!

Please advise.

That's the way a formletter type mailmerge is designed to work. Maybe you
can achieve what you are after using a Catalog (or in XP and later, a
Directory) type mailmerge main document.
