Default Multiple records on the same page

Hello, I'm trying to print a postcard-type document that fits two copies onto a single 8.5 x 11 paper. This will be mailed and cannot be larger, and since I work for a school district, I'm trying to save money by printing two postcards per page.

My question involves using mail merge in such a situation. I suppose it's most easily stated that I'll have two pages on a single sheet. If I add the merge fields to the document, the same record is printing in both places.

I tried inserting a non-breaking section, but it printed the same way.

Any ideas would be most appreciated.

TIA.

You should use a labels merge for this, with the page configured with a two-row table, one for each 'letter'. Complete the layout for the first letter, then click on 'update labels before running the mailmerge. Word will replicate the layout and add a «NextRecord» field for the second one.
