CRM Mailmerge field from Multiple Entities

How do I insert fields from an more than one entity into a mail merge template.  E.G.  We have an entity called policies, which have a lookup to the account entity.  We would like to add the associated account aname, addresss, and other details.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When you start the mail merge, you get a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mail Merge for Microsoft Office Word window.

In that window click on Data Fields near the bottom. A new window, Add Columns, appears.

In this window, click in the pick list next to Record type and choose the relevant related record type. The list of columns changes to those available for the selected record type. Click on the check box for each column that you need. Repeat for other record types.

There is a limit of 62 data fields that can be chosen.

You can use Microsoft word macros and write a VBA code to get the related entity details.
