Mail Merge

Mail Merge


For years I've merged documents in Word with my Filemaker database, but I upgraded both Word from 2004 to 2008 and Filemaker 8.5 to 9, both a while back and haven't had the need to mail merge since. Thinking I had mail merge down, I waited to the last minute and suddenly ran into a glitch in someone's new process.


In trying to merge like I have for years, there is now an interim step that asks me to filter (up to 3 choices), and since I already filtered my database, I don't need to further filter. However, if I don't filter in this new procedure and no matter how I filter, it completely screws up my merge list.


Has anyone run into this new glitch and have any hints about what to do?
