Possible to create multiple separate files from completed mail merge?

If I create a mail merge in Word and generate 10 letters, is it possible to save those letters as 10 separate PDF documents? Thanks

Hi,

Yes, once you complete the Merge in Word, you will get copies of the merged letters in separate sheets. Simply print each one to your favourite PDF writing program and save as a PDF.

Or are you looking to do this automatically via Script or Macro?

Hi,

Always helps to get a fresh point of view :)

what would you suggest if there were hundreds?

If dealing with hundreds of merge copies, then I would likely ask for help from visual basic scripting experts to write a custom script to try and automate the process. I'm sure it could be done, but such a process falls outside of my personal expertise.
