I am working on my 2011 reservation book for my restaurant. I already have the table set up in Word in a one-page document. I want to print a new day at the top of each page in this format: Day, Month Date, i.e. Saturday, January 1. I would end up with about 320 pages because I want to start with Thursday, February 10. I've messed with the field codes, maybe it means setting up a merge with Excel, I'm not sure. Please save me from having to manually create 300+ pages and type in the new date at the top of every page.

Hi lianinbandon, welcome to TSG.

It's surprisingly complicated to do things like calculations on dates in Word. It's not the kind of thing Word was set up for and you can do it, but it takes a lot of work. Your idea of a mail merge with Excel is a good one. You can enter the first date in Excel (choose the long date format to get the day with the date) and then drag down through the end of the year. Make sure you have a column heading (I used "consecutivedates"). Then you can go to your Word document and choose your Excel spreadsheet as your data source. Enter the "consecutivedates" merge field and you should get your document with a separate page for each date. Hope that helps.
