    I have Office 2010. I am trying to do a Mail Merge with 650 addresses on an envelope. All the fields merge fine except one. The field is Street Type (Dr, St, Ave, etc.). The field returns a value of time. 12:00:00 AM. The field settings on the excel spreadsheet are for Text.

    There are no leading or trailing spaces in the field.

    All other fields merge just fine and have the same settings.

    Any advice?

    What is the data type for the column in question? Is it set to text or date/time?

    It is set to text. It was previously set to General and I refreshed between the change.

    Does it show the correct value if the field is not blank?

    I don't understand. The field is not blank. The field has data in it. In fact, all the fields have data in them.

    Thanks.
