    Word 2007: Directory mail merge with cover page

    I'm pulling my hair out here and hope someone can help me.

    I have a file where I am successfully able to perform a directory mail merge to put all of my data into a tabular format. What I would like to do is to somehow automatically add a cover page to that merged document. I can't just add a cover page to the file because for every row merged, it repeats the cover page, i.e. it shows cover page, merged row, cover page, merged row, etc.

    Any idea how to do this?

    Unless I'm misunderstanding your post, why can't you finish the merge and then add a new first page that is your cover page?

    Hi Phillycarol,

    You can control the header display via a field coded as:
    {IF{MERGESEQ}= 1 "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."}
    Cheers,

    Thanks, I'll give it a try.

    kweaver - I wasn't clear. I'm creating this mail merge for multiple people to use and they want it to be as simple as possible. I know adding a cover page is already simple but they don't think so, so I was trying to automate it somehow.
