Default Name of source file in mail merge output


Is it possible to display the name of the data source (filename) along the data in the generated output?

There is no field for that - you'd have to type the name into the mailmerge main document (or use a macro to retrieve it). Either way, it's a once-off job (unless you change data sources).
