    Job Title in Mail Merge (XP)

    Hello,

    I want to create mailing labels and have the Job Title field appear on the label. In the past, this has been a no-brainer, but I can't get this to work. The contact has the Job Title field in the field chooser and it is displayed, yet when I open it up in Word (using the Mail Merge wizard) the Job Title field doesn't appear. Also, when I go and try to match fields, Job Title is not even in the list, so I can't associate a field to Job Title.

    What am I missing????

    THanks.

    I believe Word just shows the field as Title, not Job Title.

    Word's Merge feature is somewhat limited. You can select contacts and then initiate a merge from Outlook. Although I've never done it myself, many folks have posted in the past that you get a much larger selection of fields this way.

    jscher2000 and others,

    An excellent article regarding fields in mail merge is technet article 818851. It spells out which fields can and cannot be used in a Outlook to Word Mail Merge. Guess what? Job Title is one of those fields that cannot be used. A bump in my road is that I am using Outlook 2003 and Word XP (2002).

    So....there you have it!

    Perhaps you could try exporting to a neutral format, such as tab-delimited or comma-separated text?
