View Full Version : Word Mail Merge Record

06-21-2007, 06:56 AM
Hi there

We do alot of mail merging in our business and I am trying to work out if it is possible to record the mail merge process so that an operator cannot merge the data twice. The data sources are access tables so is it possible to mark the record as printed on the fly?

If you add a "Printed" field to your database, to contain "x", "yes" or whatever, this could be used to define the records that are omitted from print. Having printed, Word could write the value to that field to record it as printed.

We do this all the time in access reports but I am a bit clueless as to how you do this in word!!:dunno

Can you open my eyes a little!:thumb
