I selected the 1000-comma separator for my list in Excel. But when I merged the list into Word, the commas disappeared. is there any way to keep the commas when i merge to Word. or do I have to manually type in "1,200" in the cell in my Excel document?

Thanks to anyone who replies.

Excel only sends the data to Word, not the formatting. You can format the field on Word's end. I don't know the specifics off the top of my head (on setting the formatting in Word), but I know it can be done.

Which version of Word are you using?

Are you using Word mail merge?

If you are then what you want to look at are switches.

Like jm14 I can't remember the specifics off the top of my head but I do remember the Word help files are actually quite helpful on the subject.
