Default mail merge problem

I assume that you are following the procedure as outlined in the following
articles on fellow MVP Graham Mayors website:

€śMailmerge Labels with Word XP€ť
http://www.gmayor.com/mail_merge_lab...th_word_xp.htm

and €śMail Merge with Word 2007€ť
http://www.gmayor.com/merge_labels_with_word_2007.htm

If you execute the merge to a new document, can you see the data? If not,
maybe the font has been formatted as white or hidden.

In the mail merge main document, after updating the labels, if you use
Alt+F9 to toggle on the display of field codes, what do you see?

If you click on the Show/Hide (¶) button, what do you see? is the text
underlined by little dots, which indicates hidden font formatting.

Hope this helps.

Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my
