    Directory Mail Merge into table using unique key and page break

    Hi Everyone

    I have a data source that contains SALESPERSON, STATUS, CONTRACT VALUE, CUSTOMER NAME.
    Thanks to the posts in this forum I have been able to produce some code that formats the merge so it looks like the below:

    SALESPERSON

    CUSTOMER NAME / STATUS / CONTRACT VALUE


    The 2nd line repeats until the salesperson changes in the data source. It then creates a page break and starts again.

    What I am now trying to acheive is to have customer name, status & contract value populate in a table; When the salesperson changes it will create a new document and do the same again. I have no idea where to start. The idea is that when I have cracked it we will use it to merge invoices into emails to send to our sales people. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    See my Microsoft Word Catalogue/Directory Mailmerge Tutorial. It's a 'Sticky' Thread at the top of this forum:

    Thank You

    I am now nearly at the finish line. Using tabs I have now aligned my columns of data. The issue I am having now is that the last record for each category is ignoring the tabs. Is there a common mistake that I might be making that would cause this?

    Does the final paragraph break of the field construction have the same tab settings?
