    Mail Merge from Data Source (Word 2003)

    I'm using the Banner Student Administrative System. I downloaded data from this system into a text file. I need to use this file as a data source in creating a form letter. Is there a way of adding two fields from the data source together and enter it into one field in the form letter?

    Example:

    In my data source I have a column header callled "One" and another column header call "Two". In the first row of my data source column header one had the number 8 and column header one had the number 99. In my form letter I want 107 to show up. Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

    Hi TheDon,

    Where you want the calculation to go, insert these two mergefields into you document, thus:
