Default Mail Merge Document Type

Hello Community.


I was wondering if there is any way of saving a mail merge document as a directory? The only way I know to turn a mail merge document into a directory document type for merging is to use the wizard, and select step one, set the type as directory, then proceed.

I really need to make this document a directory, then save and keep that setting, so the mail merge knows it is a directory without having to set that using the wizard. Any direction would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your review.

If you configure a mailmerge main document for a Directory merge, then save it, it will be saved as a Directory type mailmerge main document.
