    We have a Word Perfect Mail Merge Program and would like to know if it can be converted to the Microsoft Word Mail Merge Program.

    I don't think they just convert right over. But mail merge is fairly easy. Are you doing something special?

    What we want to do is transfer the old Word Perfect Mail Merge file over to Microsoft Word Mail Merge. I don't know if this can be done. Any info you can share will be appreciated.

    How many merge fields are there? Again... I don't think they convert right over, but recreating the merge fields is no big deal, unless of course, you have many...

    In Word Perfect File there are six merge fields, and nine merge fields in Microsoft Word.

    Likely, they're not (only) merge fields that are coming over.

    WordPerfect has a tendency to leave behind "Private" fields...
