Default 3-part perforated form

I have a 3-part receipt that I use for receipting purposes, which has worked beautifully until we had our forms "redone". My problem is with the buyer names/mailing addresses, which now merges into each portion of the form. e.g. John Doe is merged 3 times, Jane Does is merged 3 times on the next 3-part form and so on and so on....I used to have a "Next Record" embedded between each part of the template to separate out the donors, but the new template was created with text boxes, which won't allow me to embed a word statement. Any suggestions?

Hi mags,

I'd suggest using tables instead of textboxes. Textboxes really aren't suitable for this.
