    Hello,

    I am formating a letter through Microsoft Word 2007 using Mail Merge. This is the layout I am using:

    «FirstName» «MiddleInitial» «LastName»«Comma»«Suffix»
    «Company»
    «Title»
    «Address1» «Address2»
    «Address3»
    «City» «State_Abbr», «Postal_Code»

    They all have Mergefield in the brackets with \b" " at the end of the bracket. The problem I am having is that a space appears in front of "FirstName" throwing off the alignment.

    Is there a code or something I can put before to fix this??

    Thank You!!!!!

    Welcome to the forum. I would check the FirstName field in your datasource to make sure you do not have a leading space within it. If so just delete them and you should be fine.

    I have checked for the space but there is none. Is there anything else that could be causing this space?

    You might have typed a space before the Merge Field in the word document.
