Hello all,
            I have created a form that merges information from one record into MS word and prints out the document, then deletes the record from the table.

The following is the code i use to accomplish this;

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
DoCmd.SetWarnings False

Dim wordobj As Object
Set wordobj = GetObject("C:\Status\status letter.doc")
wordobj.MailMerge.DataSource.QueryString = "SELECT * FROM [MailMerge] WHERE ID = " & ID
wordobj.MailMerge.Destination = wdSendToNewDocument
wordobj.MailMerge.Execute
wordobj.Application.Options.PrintBackground = False
wordobj.Application.ActiveDocument.PrintOut
wordobj.Application.Quit wdDoNotSaveChanges
Set wordobj = Nothing

CurrentDb.Execute "Delete * FROM [MailMerge] WHERE ID = " & ID
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdRecordsGoToNew
DoCmd.SetWarnings True



The word document "status letter.doc" has two pages one is an envelope (page 0) and the other is a letter (page 1).  Right now it works fine and prints both the envelope and the letter.  How would I print the envelope once then print the letter(page1) twice?

Thanks,
Shane

Seems like the easy way would be to copy Page1 and paste it to Page2.  Then print the whole document.
