Q: I am working on a mail merge with my boss who does not like the fact that when the address block is inserted into the letter a comma appears after the company name. Is there a way to delete this comma for all the documents without having to go to each one individually and change them? Also, my computer has the order of the address block as name, company, address, country. But when my boss attempts to do a mail merge her address block has the order of company, name, address, country. Is there any way of changing that order without eliminating any of the fields. Thank you.
A: I don't like using the Address Block field. I personally prefer to insert the fields individually which gives you more control over their appearance.
Yes, I show using the Address Block in my free Mail Merge tutorial:
But if you want more control, just insert the fields individually by clicking on MORE ITEMS... Address Line 1, Address Line 2, City, State, etc.
To answer your first question, if you've ALREADY performed the merge, yes, you'll have to go through and manually edit all of the records to remove those commas - unless you can re-merge the documents.
