    I hope someone out there has the answer as I have spent many hours trying to work this porblem through.

    My outlook 2002 contacts when I transfer to mail merge there is an inconsistency with the details I have entered in the data. Like one will have the Mr and then it will miss a few then maybe decide to add it again there is no pattern happening. So when I attempt to enter say a 300 odd contacts mail merge I have to individually go through and alter and check each one. My outlook contacts data is filled out corectly with the Mr & Mrs (or whatever is applicable). At time it will say Dear Anna (not Dear Ms Cox) then on the next one it could say Dear Mr Williams - whereas all the data is filled out exactly the same. I hope this makes some sense it's driving me mad!!!!

    I thought you could set up rules or conditions when you mail merged. So that if a particular field was blank, it would not be included.
