I am using MS Publisher 2007 and have created postcards (4 postcards to a sheet)  I have used mail merge to put the addresses on the back side of the postcard, but am getting the same address on all 4 postcards on each sheet.  Any help?

You have to set up your merge with 4 postcards on one page, not on just one postcard.
In other words, you will have to create one postcard (in the wizard, if that is what you use), then copy that to a new document on a letter size paper. Divide your paper into quarters. Once you have the first postcard exactly how you want it, then copy it to the other 3 postcards. You have to fool around with it a little to get it just right with the merge fields...but once you do...your merge should work just fine.

I still could not get the addresses to merge correctly in Publisher, and ended up using mail merge in MS Word and printing the addresses that way.  Thanks for the suggestion though.
