Default Mail merge in sections with address list

Hello!

I'm trying to do a mail merge with several pages.
The letter/mail consists of a minimum of 2 pages:
- Page 1: Front page (Portrait) - Section 1
- Page 2: Appendix (Landscape) - Section 2

It works if I mail merge one at the time, but when I try to merge it all it does this:

Person 1
- Page 1: Front page (Portrait) - Section 1
- Page 2: Appendix (Portrait) - Section 1



Person 2
- Page 1: Front page (Portrait) - Section 1
- Page 2: Appendix (Landscape) - Section 2

--
What I need it to do is:
Person 1
- Page 1: Front page (Portrait) - Section 1
- Page 2: Appendix (Landscape) - Section 2

Person 2
- Page 1: Front page (Portrait) - Section 1
- Page 2: Appendix (Landscape) - Section 2

Person n
- Page 1: Front page (Portrait) - Section 1
- Page 2: Appendix (Landscape) - Section 2

What am I doing wrong?
I've tried to do it like this:

Page 1:
Section break (Continuous)
Portrait mode
[Content]
Section break (Next Page)
Page 2:
Landscape
[Content]

I've uploaded it to my dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bw1qadjja...SbDeyQ-ZMGonWa

It contains 3 files:
- Excel list (Data)
- The letter (Content)
- The result. (Result of metioned use of sections)

Your attachment was unavailable, however the first section break is superfluous. It should be

Page 1:
Portrait mode
[Content]
Section break (Next Page)
Page 2:
Landscape
[Content]

This will merge to a new document with alternating portrait and landscape pages - or to separate documents with http://www.gmayor.com/individual_merge_letters.htm
