    Hi. I have a mail merge letter asking for the recipients to respond by a certain date - in 14 days time for aguments sake. How can i get Word to calculate a future date automatically though? I have today's date and all the names and addresses inserted automatically....i am missing this one final piece though!

    I have found other strings on the topic, but they have attachements that i don't seem to be able to open.

    Many thanks,
    Alastair

    There is an attachment in Post 249902 which I have just downloaded successfully. This should have the information you need.

    Have you had a look at Post 365442

    Alternatively, if you are using Excel as your merge source, could you not do the calculation in the source worksheet?

    Thanks - these are the two i found. It must be my work's over zelous firewalls getting in the way of the downloads...i'll fine a way around that though!

    I am merging from an access database - originally my thought was to hold dates within the table of addresses and merge them like any other field. Can't figure out how to get a date into a table though without using a drop down list in each and every line in the table.

    I'll see if i can download these two posts and take it from there.

    Cheers!

    Sorry, I don't understand - what do you mean by that?
