    Directory Merge (XP)

    I have a text file that lists students. In each row is a document that they need to turn in. So one student can have 10 entries in the text file with all the info the same except for the document. I want to use the Directory Merge to have a document with the student's name and a list of the documents that they need. According to the help files that's what is suppose to happen but I never see anywhere that specifies what is the main item (name) and sub items (documents).

    An earlier thread on merging variable numbers of records together as a group yielded these links. Do any of them help?
