Have a Word 2003 document that has an image for its' header and footer. Have setup the merge fields, formated the document and, all is well until . . .

When I merge to new document(s), the header and footer are not there.

I have checked the option to include background images and colors, but still, no header.

What am I missing (besides my header and footer) :confused:

Thanks,

DG

When you merge to a new document, that is just what it is - a new document.
Headers and footers reside with a specific document. What happens in a mailmerge is you transfer a series of docs to one document - headers/footers are not part of the data transferred. Neither would comments, tracking notes, etc. be in the new document.

My solution, after you pushed me in the right direction was to create a new document template which included the Header and footer, then added it to Word (Tools --> Templates and Add-Ins --> Add --> MyTemplate.dot

Now I merge to file (so they can verify it all worked - duh! :rolleyes: ) and the document has the header placed correctly every third page. Yea!
