Merging from Filemaker into Word while preserving sort order
I'm trying to merge data from FilemakerPro 9 into Word for Mac 2008. However I have a 5-level sorting scheme which I've applied to the records in FMP.
I want to keep the records in this order in the Word document. Can anyone suggest how I can do this? I've been using Mail Merge Manager but when I complete the merge, the data appears a different, (apparently random) sort order.
Thank you for your post.
It's been a few years since I used Word, but I used to export FileMaker Pro data to a "Merge" text file, and that translates to a Word "Merge Data Document". I just exported a sorted file, and the information is exported in sorted order.
Anybody else use Word? Does this still apply?
