[FONT=&quot][h=1]Can you use mail merge to take data from excel and put it in to a word doc table and then when the table is full it starts a new page with new table?[/h]


[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]I have a Word Doc that I use for tracking ingress and egress. The table holds 20 entries. I’m trying to use mail merge to take data from Excel and put it in to the Word Doc table, and then when the table is full, it creates a new page and new table starting with the 21st entry from Excel. Is this even possible?

I don't believe Word's default Mail Merge will support this but a more fundamental question. If you are using a table in Word that is populated from a table in Excel, why not use the table in Excel in the first place?

The word doc was created to be filled in by hand. The database is automatically generated in excel from proprietary software. I'm trying to automate the process

I don't believe Mail Merge will do what you want. If the layouts in Excel and Word are the same maybe you can copy+paste the entire table in one step. Other alternatives exist such as creating a new table in Excel that has the same layout as Word then using copy+paste or using code to copy+paste data cell by cell.

In the Word document in the Mailings tab, click on the Finish & Merge button, then select Edit Individual Documents. Make sure All is the selected option.

Cheers,
