Default Print 2 A5 mail merged tables onto each A4 sheet

I have created an A5 document that has a table where fields are filled in by
mail merge, there is well over one hundred records so I would like to get two
A5 prints onto each A4 sheet. I have tried setting the print dialog to 2
pages but it still only gives me one small print per A4. Is there a way I can
make this work?

Don't do it in the Print dialog. Do it in the Page Setup dialog (under
"Multiple pages"). Your merge should then work correctly.

I can attest that this will work, as I have created a directory set up this
way.

Thanks for your reply.
I have now tried this and, while it gives exactly the orientation and layout
I want, it only prints one receipt per A4 sheet - at the top. I have also
tried adjusting the print dialogs with this page setup and it just makes the
receipt smaller.

You do NOT want to do this in the Print dialog at all, only in the Page
Setup dialog. Are you sure you're using a "Directory" or "Catalog" merge and
not Letter or Label?
