    Hi, great forum.

    I am looking for some help on a merge issue. Have set up an excel database with 3 rows (a header row, a data row and a formula row). I have set up a macro in word to auto merge and print the document i want, hoever it keeps pulling across data from row 3, ignoring my macro which is clearing the recipient list and choosing the line i want.

    Any ideas on how to change the macro code and what with, or how to alter the database sheet for the 3rd row to be ignored?

    Thanks in advance(y)

    I've never heard of 'Mail Merge' executing a macro from Excel. Maybe possible, has this worked before?

    Generally it would be run from Excel, I tend to think, such as in this:

    However, Tonyam, there is no way anyone can really assist you well with such vague information. Post your code and one of the VBA experts will be able to help you rapidly.
