Default Word 2010 - directory mail merge - two separate group of data in one document


Is it possible to create a form letter that has two distinct areas for two separate groups of data? For example, an acknowledgement to a customer for a recent order. The letter can list all items that will ship immediately and also list all items that is backordered.

Thanks advance for your help.

No - you can only merge a single data source. You can however merge Many to One with http://www.gmayor.com/ManyToOne.htm if you have the data setup appropriately. You can probably derive a suitable worksheet from your existing two sources.

I know this is an old thread but, FWIW, you could do this with a letter merge and two DATABASE fields (one each for the 'ship immediately' items and the backorder items), even if they're in different files, provided all data sets have a common key (e.g. client ID#).
