    Hi,

    I have a form that needs to be filled in for several hundred letters, containing (legacy) checkboxes and (legacy) text form fields.

    Now, I have found a macro/add-in that will allow me to perform a mail merge and save each letter created to a separate word document (link here http://www.gmayor.com/individual_merge_letters.htm ).

    What I can't find is a way to create those merged letters/documents with the text form fields intact -- according to MS in this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/286841 performing a mail merge removes all text form fields, but they provide an example of a macro that will perform a mail merge that retains the form fields BUT it outputs all the letters to a single document, while I need to spit each letter into a separate document.

    Could anyone help me combine the two macros so that I can get my form *with text fields* mail merged to *separate* documents? I have no idea how to code in VBA unfortunately... I am using Word 2007 on XP if that is of any relevance.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated :eek:

    Hi,

    Attached is a (very stripped down) demo document for the mail merge and a source list.
