    Wizard mailmerge (Word XP Dutch)

    Good afternoon,

    Can anybody tell me why the wizard mailmerge doesn't do the same thing as the buttons from the mailmerge bar.
    The following occurs:
    1. I have a letter with all the standard information.
    2. I have an *.mdb adresslist
    I tried to merge those two by using the wizard with as a result the ten letters without the information!
    When I use the same two documents and merge them with the buttons from the mergebar, everything goes allright.

    I'm <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Many thanks in advance,
    Daphne

    Hello Daphne,

    Did the Word document already contain merge fields before you started the mail merge wizard?

    You must place mail merge fields in the document. The wizard lets you do this in step 4 of 6 - see screenshot below.

    That is strange indeed, they should have the same result. I cannot explain why the Wizard doesn't work.
