MailMerge Object

Multiple objects

Represents the mail merge functionality in Word.

Using the MailMerge Object

Use the MailMerge property to return the MailMerge object. The MailMerge object is always available regardless of whether the mail merge operation has begun. Use the State property to determine the status of the mail merge operation. The following example executes a mail merge if the active document is a main document with an attached data source.

If ActiveDocument.MailMerge.State = wdMainAndDataSource Then
End If

The following example merges the main document with the first three data records in the attached data source and then sends the results to the printer.

Set myMerge = ActiveDocument.MailMerge
If myMerge.State = wdMainAndSourceAndHeader Or _
    myMerge.State = wdMainAndDataSource Then
    With myMerge.DataSource
        .FirstRecord = 1
        .LastRecord = 3
    End With
End If
With myMerge
    .Destination = wdSendToPrinter
End With
