Use of internal word table as data source?

Hi,


I am trying to find out if it is possible to reference a table in the main document as the data source for the mail merge? Or does it have to be in a separate document?

I am aware of that the data source is not used when the actual merge is performed, but it is nice for end users to have available field names appear in the standard menu for Word at template editing time. I have created a Word document with a header table and set it as source manually with success, but is not an appealing approach for end users. Hence the reason that I would like the template to be totally self-provisioned…

Regards,

Hi

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, as I know, there is no way to use an internal data for mail merge in MS Words. Also unfortunately, I did not find any way to attach template to the data source stored in web. MS Word seems to allow only loading data from files stored on local PC or in network.

Best regards,

Ok, as I suspected…Thanks for your prompt response!
