Even a macro wouldn't make it automatic, since the users would still have to remember to run it.

That said, Word does have a 'MailMergeAfterMerge' class event that could be hooked into to make it automatic, but enabling the event is a fair bit of work to set up and requires the code to be added to the users' templates rather than to the mailmerge main document. For a basic outline, see: http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/MacrosVBA/AppClassEvents.htm
