Okay, this is it. I've got data in a Filemaker Pro 9 file that I want to get into a Word 2008 file. I've managed to create a .mer file and import that into Word '08, but can't get more than one record at a time to appear.

The Word file is a booklet (phone directory) with linked text boxes. The idea is to fill these text boxes with the appropriate data, but, alas, no fill. I can preview the merged data, but only one file at a time appears in the text box. the merge type is 'catalog', so I'm guessing it should print multiple records in the same doc.

Does anyone know how to get the data to appear all at once in the same text box as opposed to each record appearing in a new doc?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Knowing it all is simply knowing nothing - louder!

QUOTE Thanks
