I am running MS Word 2007 under Windows 7 and have a mail-merge letter. My data source is an Excel file.
While preparing the letter, I inserted an if ... then rule that displays either of two messages, depending on a value in the spreadsheet. Now I would like to change some of the words in one of the messages. How can I revise an already written rule in mail merge? Making a revision in the text in "Preview Results" does not work.
I fear that the answer will be "Never use rules in an MS Mail Merge." Put the different messages in the source, i.e., the Excel spreadsheet."
