How to preserve formatting in MS Word MailMerge ?
Posted on 2014-12-10
I am doing a mailmerge using MS Word 2013. I have a table in an MS Word 2013 file with entries, and a few words have simple formatting (e.g. italics or bold). I want to merge to a new directory (e.g. one or two pages with all the table entries), but when I do this, the formatting is lost, and everything comes out roman (non-italic) characters.
In the mailmerge document, I have tried
MERGEFIELD "Question" \* MERGEFORMAT
MERGEFIELD "Question" \* CHARFORMAT
with the same results: no italics or bold.
Is there a way I can create the merge I want?
