    I have created a mail merge document in Word that also incorporates several word fields ( ask, if..then..else ) The primary document includes an If..then..else field that calls for IncludeText of another document. Within that document are more ask and if..then..else statements. In the final merge, Word asks the Ask fields twice...even though I have checked the ask once box and am only merging to one record. Any ideas on what I have done wrong? I have been working in both Word 2000 and Word 2002.

    Okay, never mind. I figured it out. You have to put all the Ask fields in the original document and then reference the bookmarks in the subsequent documents.

    Don't feel bad, Dreamboat. In the process of looking for an answer to my problem, I found this website and have learned all sorts of things. This place is great.
