Default Carrying Conditional Formatting (Cell Colours) From Excel into Word during Merge


Firstly, please understand that I'm relatively inexperienced in both Word and Excel.

I've managed to create a successful merge from an excel document, but need to carry over cell formatting to the word document itself.

I have attached both documents.

Where 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc refer to criteria on the word document I would like for the cell in the table to fill with the same colour. I have managed to get it copy the text written and format that, but it's not the same. I need the whole cell filling.

Is there a way of making this work or am I going about this in the wrong way?

A mailmerge carries only the data, not formatting like fonts, colours, etc. To conditionally colour the table cells in your document, you'll need to take the approach described under Conditionally Shade Table Cells in the Mailmerge Tips and Tricks 'Sticky' thread at he top of this forum:
