Use a catalog (or in Word XP and later, it is called "directory") type
mailmerge main document in which you have just a one row table with the
mergefields in the cells of that table. There must be nothing else in the
document other than the single after the table that you cannot delete.
When you execute that merge to a new document which is the only possible
destination, that new document will contain a table with a row of data for
each record in the data source.

I noticed that you said that there could be nothing else in this document.
I'm trying to create a course listing per instructor so that there is a
title page and informaton for each instructor and then the course listing in
a table. Is this doable. I've managed to do this without a table but I want
the table included.

Thanks in advance for you help
