Default Directory mail merge skips entries

When I set up to mail merge a directory, the merge form has four repeats of
the merge fields, each ending with "next record" mergefield. When I print to
a document for more than 4 records (the total is about 500), the printed
document skips the 5th record. What so I need to do to have the directory
use all of the records? I am using Microsoft Office with Excel and Word on
Windows XP. The Office is Student and Teacher Edition 2003

In a Directory Mail Merge you really only need one set of mergefields -
nothing else. I am not sure why you have four sets, but you definitely do
not need a Next Record field after the fourth set of merge fields.

Remove the next record field from the end of the last of the four entries.
