Default Wine List, Data Merge - Excel to Publisher - Or other suggestions?

I have an Excel worksheet which has a list of 1000 wines (and lots of other information about each wine), each wine is marked by a column containing a 1 or 0 as to whether it is white, red, sold by bottle or glass (and other things) some wines are have more than one column marked with a 1.



I want to produce a wine list that can be printed (it needs to look good) and I want to merge the data from this worksheet into MS Publisher. On the wine list I have pages that contain a number of headings i.e. one page is 'Wines by the Glass' and then sub headings of 'Champagne','White Wine','Red Wine'.

I have tried a catalog merge into Publisher, but I can't have more than one filter criteria from a single workbook. The only way I can think of doing it is by filtering each section out in Excel and creating a new workbook for each one (Using VBA) and then using each individual workbook as the data sources for Publisher.

Does anyone have any other suggestions as to how I may go about it? Or indeed any suggestions as to better/more effective software solution. The wine list is updated on almost a daily basis as such needs to be as simple as possible for the user.

Thanks

Hi daym,

You can use Word's Catalogue/Directory Mailmerge facility for this (the terminology depends on the Word version). To see how to do so with any mailmerge data source supported by Word, check out my Microsoft Word Catalogue/Directory Mailmerge Tutorial at:
http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...ngs-(2000-2010)
or
http://www.gmayor.com/Zips/Catalogue%20Mailmerge.zip
Do read the tutorial before trying to use the mailmerge document included with it. Amongst other things, the tutorial shows how to group records by two categories.
