Hello,

When mailmerge Word and Excel documents I noticed that all Excel formatting was lost in the WOrd Mailmerge Output.
For example the €222,222.00 in Excel gives me a 222222 in the Word mailmerge document

I understood that I have to add something like \# "€,0.00" to the MERGEFIELD command

Do I have to do these formatting manually? or is there in interface in Word to do it ?
Is there a list with all the formating I need for my mailmerge ?
I need to format date fields, % field, text field, mony fields, ect....

Thank you...

In word, either hit ALT+F9 to view field codes, or right click the field, edit field, then show codes.
