Default Mailmerge merge fields

Hi All

Using Mail Merge (Word 2002) : When inserting the merge fields in the form letter. I find that after inserting one field I have to close the window, then click on More Items on the Task Pane and insert another field, close the window, click on More Items on the Task Pane again and repeat these steps for all the fields.
Am I doing something wrong or is there a shorter way to do it?

I need some help please

Default Mailmerge merge fields

Hi Bali,

You can insert all of the fields in the one go and then arrange them, though
that is not really very satisfactory.

Or you can down load the sample file under the "Display list of merge fields
in a non-modal dialog box" topic under the "Setting up the main merge
document" section of the "Mail merge in Word 2002" item on fellow MVP Cindy
Meister's website at:

http://homepage.swissonline.ch/cindy...r/MergFram.htm

There is however a slight error in the code behind that form in that
document which means that the Insert Field button on the form does not work.
Double clicking on a field in the list does however work.

To correct the error in the code, right click on the frmMergeFields under
the Forms item in the Project Explorer in the Visual Basic Editor and select
the View Code item. Then locate

Private Sub cmdInsertFields_Click()

and change it to

Private Sub cmdInsertField_Click()

Please post any further questions or followup to the newsgroups for the
benefit of others who may be interested. Unsolicited questions forwarded
directly to me will only be answered on a paid consulting basis.

Hope this helps
