Recursion / Iteration in Word 2013 Mail Merge
Posted on 2016-09-26
I have created a mail merge to make labels in Word 2013 from a CSV data source. I am new to mail merge but picked up the basics well enough - I can create my labels in the format I want, but there is a wrinkle to the process. Each record in the CSV contains a field with a number "n", and in the merge I need "n" identical copies of the same label. For example if that field held the number three, I need to generate 3 identical labels from that record before progressing on to the next record.
I have identified the functionality to define variables and use If Then statements but there does not seem to be any options for iteration or recursion. If the functionality exists please let me know, if not does anyone have any other suggestions?
