I am trying to mail merge from Excel into Word 2016. Am I right that the fill colour formatting I have used to highlight cells in Excel won't transfer to Word with the mail merge?

Is it possible to merge the colour formatting also?


Can anyone help?

You can accommodate the used of mixed upper/lower case by editing the first «MyField» in each expression. For example, with:
{IF«MyField»= "WELL*" «MyField» \* Charformat}
select the first «MyField» and press Shift-F9 to expose the field code. The field will now look like:
{IF{MERGEFIELD MyField}= "WELL*" «MyField» \* Charformat}
or:
{IF{MERGEFIELD MyField \* MERGEFORMAT}= "WELL*" «MyField» \* Charformat}
Edit the field code so you get:
{IF{MERGEFIELD MyField \* Upper}= "WELL*" «MyField» \* Charformat}
Press F9 when you're done. This will convert the first «MyField»'s output to all upper-case for testing purposes.

Having edited that field, you can copy/paste it over the first «MyField» in each of the remaining expressions
Thank you for that tip, I will know next time
