Default Excel to mail merge word formatting

I have a problem that I can't seem to address. Really simple.
We lookup numbers and format in excel that cell which has the number in and
mailmerge and some come out in numbers and others come out in date or time
values. Now in this particular mailmerge box I don't use dates or time just
plain 7 digit numbers and the excel cell is in general formatting. I have
also tried the number formatting with no decimal points. Help please...

You haven't really said what the problem is (or what you cannot get it to
do), but you will probably find the answer in the article "Formatting Word
fields with switches" on fellow MVP Graham Mayor's website at

Hi Stuart,

Are any of the cells in the Excel column formatted as dates or times or contain date or time strings?
