Default Word 2003 mail merge-can you auto save letters individually?

I have a monstrous mail merge to do where I have to individually save
each letter with the title in a certain format. (It needs to contain a
reference number) I have literally SEVEN HUNDRED letters to save and
it's going to take me forever to do it one by one!

Does anyone have ideas on an efficient way of doing this?

Thanks,

Em

See the "Individual Merge Letters" item on fellow MVP Graham Mayor's website
at:

http://www.gmayor.com/individual_merge_letters.htm

If you are using Word XP or later, the "Add-in to Merge Letters to Separate
Files" that I have written and that can be downloaded from that site will
allow you to create each letter as a separate file with a filename taken
from a field in the data source with a minimum of fuss.
