Make a Match

When you open the Excel spreadsheet and review the labels in the first row, you may notice that the labels are not spelled the same as the Mail Merge Fields in the Word document. This is the problem.


5. Try This: Match Fields

Go to the Main Document.

Go to Mailings.

Go to Write and Insert Fields.
Click on Match.


What Do You see? You should see the Merge fields in the document in the left column and the labels in your Recipient List shown in the right column. You can use the drop-down lists to choose the right match.



When you finish matching the fields, Click OK. It should work, now. Done and done.
