INCLUDETEXT in mail merge doc's?

mlagrange asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-16
Hello - I've used INCLUDETEXT in a mail merge situation before, when the included doc's were just straight text, and it worked great.

But now I have a situation where the included doc's have mail merge fields themselves, and they are not getting updated. I did the Control/A, F9 thing, but still no luck.

The main and included doc's are all in the same folder on the network, and all use the same datasource. This is an Access-to-Word mail merge, using Office 2003.

Should this work?
