Adds a FILLIN field to a mail merge main document. Returns a MailMergeField object. When updated, a FILLIN field displays a dialog box that prompts you for text to insert into the document at the location of the FILLIN field.

Note  Use the Add method with the Fields collection object to add a FILLIN field to a document other than a mail merge main document.
