    I was wondering if it is possible to do a merge where instead of outputting to a document where each record is on a seperate page, but rather, each record is it's own document.

    For example, if I have 12 records in my database, I would like 12 documents after the merge. So instead of having one document with 12 pages, I'll end up with 12 documents with 1 page each.

    The other alternative is to be able to save each page of a multipage document in a separate file for each page.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks!!!

    I am sure you could do it from Access alone and output the fields into a preformatted document that would create a new doc for each record.

    Yep!

    In your Word Document You must do this....

    Dear Mr. (MailmergeField)LastName:

    blah blah

    PageBreak

    Dear Mr. (MailMergeField)NextRecord LastName:

    blah blah
    PageBreak

    You will find the Next record field to insert under the Word Fields drop down. I do this all the time. if you have more questions just ask.NextRecord

    Yes, while that advice will put each document on it' s own page... it will not open up seperate instances of word for each record...
    however if you visit this website... and download code sample #24, it's pretty self explanatory, and the instructions are very good...

    good luck.
