Collating Multiple Mail Merge Documents

My situation is that I have several Word documents that require mail merging. The data source will be the same for each mail merged document (a list of customers). However, I would like to collate the pages from each mail merged document so that when printed they are grouped by customer. This way, they do not have to be manually collated after they have been printed.

I want to handle this in code. I do not want to combine the mail merged documents into one in order to mail merge. And I don’t want to have to insert any special markers into the mail merge documents.

What is the best approach to this?
