Word 2000 Mail Merge Headers
Posted on 2001-09-06
I have two machines with Word 2000 and I'm having a problem on one when trying to use mail merge with a Tab Delimited TXT file as the data source.
My Data is:
Name (tab) Address (tab) City
John (tab) Elm St. (tab) MyTown
Problem is, when I create document, open data source (no separate header file) and then click "Insert Merge Field"
Instead of the expected...
This works on one machine but not the other. If I save the TXT file as a DOC file and then use it as a data source it works correctly.
Is there an optional setting for delimiters in the header record of a TXT Merge File??? Or, what's happening??
