MailMergeFields Object (Word)

A collection of MailMergeField objects that represent the mail merge related fields in a document.

Remarks

Use the Fields property to return the MailMergeFields collection. The following example adds an ASK field after the last mail merge field in the active document.

Set myMMFields = ActiveDocument.MailMerge.Fields 
myMMFields(myMMFields.Count).Select 
Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdWord, Count:=1, Extend:=wdMove 
ActiveDocument.MailMerge.Fields.AddAsk Range:=Selection.Range, _ 
 Name:="Name", Prompt:="Type your name", AskOnce:=True

Use the Add method to add a merge field to the MailMergeFields collection. The following example replaces the selection with a MiddleInitial merge field.

ActiveDocument.MailMerge.Fields.Add Range:=Selection.Range, _ 
 Name:="MiddleInitial"

Use Fields (Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single MailMergeField object. The following example displays the field code of the first mail merge field in the active document.

MsgBox ActiveDocument.MailMerge.Fields(1).Code

The MailMergeFields collection has additional methods, such as AddAsk and AddFillIn, for adding fields related to a mail merge operation.
