    Mail Merge using Email (Word 2002)

    I have figured out how to do a mail merge using email, but I want to be able to have an attachment go along with the email.

    I can't seem to figure this out.

    I want the additional page(s) to be an attachment instead of just additional pages to the document because the attachment is a Word Form Fill. If I just include the 2nd doc with the main doc the form fill capabilities are lost once the email is sent to the recipients.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    This is a known problem. There is a workaround, but unfortunately, it involves VBA code and is very slow. See WD2002: Text Form Fields Are Not Retained During Mail Merge.

    Thx Hans

    I took a look at the MIcrosoft site and found a related thread. It appears the steps to even send an attachment are way beyond me.

    So .... I guess I'll have to figure out some other way to accomplish what I want to do

    Thanks again for your input
