Output portal records to one merge file for MS Word

Hello,

 

this is my first post so be gentle!

 

I have been using Filemaker since it was Claris Works and thats a Looooooong time!

 

I have been scratching my head trying to export to a mail merge using fields from Table 1, only one record at a time which works OK no problem. But I am only able to get the first record from the related Table 2 portal in the Table1 layout, the portal is one field only and a maximum of eight records, to show in the merge.

 

I have tried a repeating field using the same relationship but that does not work.. If I enter the data from Table 2 manually using a related pop-up into a repeating field on the Table 1 that will show in the merge file but as a string not line by line as required and is too messy to do it that way.

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
