    One of my colleagues at Work has discovered that following an upgrade from Word 97 to Word XP, the Data Source fields within Mail Merge no longer show the field's contents in full. Instead only half of the sentence is visible in the right hand pane. Then, when she selects the source to add it to the document, it is still only showing half of it. This did not used to happen with Word 97.

    Question:

    Is there a way of increasing a fields character length, so that the full intended sentence or data to be merged shows up after adding it to the document ? If so please advise on how this can be done.

    Many Thanks

    Anton
