Thread: Mail Merge from Multiple worksheets

    Say I have a workbook with multiple pages - one for each of several occupations of employees for example. On each page I have a table with columns labled as per Word merge fields (first_name, last_name etc).

    How can I merge from a single selected page for a particular occupation? It seems to want to look on the first page only.

    (Excel 97)

    anon,

    i don't know if this process is the same for excel 97, but I use excel 2000 and word 2000 and i manage to merge a selected sheet using the following process:

    from word
    tools -> mail merge

    select your "Main Document"

    "Data Source" and when the window pops up for you to find your source excel data source, put a check in the "Select Method" box at the bottom then open the file.

    You will now get a window entitled "Confirm data source:". Select "Microsoft Excel Worksheet via Converter (*.xls,*.xlw)" then click "ok"

    (note: you will probably need your excel cd to install the needed feature - first time only )

    Now you will get a window "Open Worksheet" which gives you a drop down menu with all the worksheets of the excel data source you selected in it.

    Hope thats what you were looking for. I hope that works for excel 97.
