Word Label Mail Merge with QR Code is wrong on page 2+

I have a Mail merge that is pulling data from an excel spreadsheet (sheet name:  Summary$)

I created the mail merge document inserting the fields I need from the worksheet.  One of the fields is called "Barcode".  I apply the fond "IDAutomation2D", and the QR encoded data is displayed as a bar code.  Problem is that at the end of page 1, the last row of labels and all subsequent pages have the bar code showing up very large and taking up the entire space on the label.  Why is it doing this and how can I fix this, so the bar code does what the 1st row on page 1 is doing?

See attached spreadsheet and word template and output.

It might have something to do with your data. The first eight records have a length of 315 characters (Summary Tab - Column R). After that, the rest have 1139. I'm not familiar with  EncQR Function, but I noticed it's not in cells P2 to P9. I tried to copy P9 to P10 but received an error.

Thanks.  That was the problem, the data had more characters on those other cells.  Once I copied the formula in row 2 to the rest, its working now.
