Mail merge problems

When I do a mail merge, "fake" columns are created, and my letters wind up with the wrong information in them. For example, in my Excel workbook, I have columns labeled F! through F13. In the mail merge, there will be a faux column number of F113. There is no such column in my workbook. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks very much

Most likely, someone has referenced the wrong column in a mergefield. And rest assured, your workbook does have column 113. That said, you'd do far better to give the columns you're using meaningful titles and reference those titles in the mergefields.
