Hi guys,

I get an error as 'Requested object not available' on line

.Destination = wdSendToNewDocument

I'm not sure what I should define this as?

Cheers in advance

VBA Code:
Sub Mail_Merge()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim StrFolder As String, StrName As String, MainDoc As Document, i As Long, j As Long
Const StrNoChr As String = """*./\:?|"
Dim MyDate
Dim Month

MyDate = Format(Date, "yyyymmdd")
Month = Format(Date, "mmmm")
        
Set MainDoc = ActiveDocument
With MainDoc
  StrFolder = "C:\Users\Letters Sent\" & Month & "\"
  With .MailMerge
    .Destination = wdSendToNewDocument
    .SuppressBlankLines = True
    On Error Resume Next
    For i = 1 To .DataSource.RecordCount
      With .DataSource
        .FirstRecord = i
        .LastRecord = i
        .ActiveRecord = i
        If Trim(.DataFields("FirstName")) = "" Then Exit For
        'StrFolder = .DataFields("Folder") & "\"
        StrName = MyDate & " - " & .DataFields("File_Name")
      End With
      .Execute Pause:=False
      If Err.Number = 5631 Then
        Err.Clear
        GoTo NextRecord
      End If
      For j = 1 To Len(StrNoChr)
        StrName = Replace(StrName, Mid(StrNoChr, j, 1), "_")
      Next
      StrName = Trim(StrName)
      With ActiveDocument
        '.SaveAs FileName:=StrFolder & StrName & ".docx", FileFormat:=wdFormatXMLDocument, AddToRecentFiles:=False
        ' and/or:
        .SaveAs FileName:=StrFolder & StrName & ".pdf", FileFormat:=wdFormatPDF, AddToRecentFiles:=False
        .Close SaveChanges:=False
      End With
NextRecord:
    Next i
  End With
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
ActiveDocument.Close SaveChanges:=wdDoNotSaveChanges
End Sub

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.
