Does anyone know if our upgrade from fp7 to fp12 has eliminated our ability to merge FM data to a MS Word 2016 for Mac document?
If not, we are missing something...any feedback appreciated, please.
Johan, we just discovered the problem: We included a field that should not have been exported, as the data included quotation marks, thereby, overflowing into subsequent data fields. In the past, prior to our upgrades, the text field, despite the quotes, did not cause overflow to subsequent fields. With appreciation, Al
What kind of merge did you do?
I exported a .mer file from FileMaker. I then opened MS Word 2016 for Mac and used an existing merge document already populated with the fields exported from FileMaker. I got the window "Mail Merge...Record 1 does not have the same number of fields as the first row in Untitled.mer. Ensure that all records have the same number of fields." The result appeared to have some field coordination and others in the wrong place. Thank you.
