Default Using a merge field more than once

If I use a merge field multiple times in a Word 2007 merge document, does it
count against the limit of 64 merge fields each time I use it?

Thanks,
Ilja

No, it would not count. The limit to which you refer is probably imposed by
the data source, which I assume in your case is a table in a Word document.
For a data source in Excel or Access the limit is more like 256 fields

Hope this helps.
