    Is it possible to include tabular data (with embedded tabs and carraige returns) in a mail merge document?

    Thanks for any help you can lend.

    Here's what I'd like to accomplish: In addition to name, addresss, etc. in a mail merge letter to people who have made donations to our organization, we want to include a list of contributions. The number of contributions per donor could be one or many, and for each contribution we want to have columns for date, amount, and category.

    For example:

    To: Donor #1
    123 Main Street

    Thank you for the following donations:

    Date Amount Category
    02/01/08 $50 membership
    09/15/08 $100 scholarship

    No.

    This is called a compound merge or multiple-record merge. The best option is to either use Access and create reports from there, or have someone program it in Excel.
