I have a mail merge that comes into my business card layout. I need each business card to have a different record from the mail merge. Instead, I get an entire page of business cards for each mail recipient. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forum.

Sure there is, use labels as the output when it asks what do you want to make and select the business card template number when you come to that section.

I'm not following...it doesn't ever ask me what I want to make. Also, I need to have the graphics, etc. that I already have built on each business card. I think I'm missing something. Can you explain more please?

When you are laying out the business cards there is an "Update All Labels" button which will take whatever is in the first label and copy/paste it across all of the other labels.

I'm not finding any button or menu option with this and HELP doesn't reference it either. I'm running 2007. However, I did take your advice about changing to a label format, merging, and then if I select 'Use multiple pages' on the Print Setup popup window, it prints only 1 of each name in my data source file, but on a single page.

I would still like to know where this button is though for future reference.

You did not use the "Merge to New Document" button. I do not have 2007 so you will have to look around a little bit to find the button to finalize the merge.
