Default How to Insert all merge fields into a blank document

I have a CSV data source that contains over 50 merge fields. When creating forms I often have to scroll endlessly to the bottom of the list to insert the fields I want to use in the form.




Is there a way to insert every merge field into a blank document without having to do it manually?


For example:


<<FirstName>>
<<MiddleName>>
<<LastName>>


Thanks

It is difficult to understand the point of this, but the following macro will work, provided you attach the datasource to the blank document:
Code:
Sub Macro1()
Dim i As Integer
Dim orng As Range
    With ActiveDocument.MailMerge.DataSource
        For i = 1 To .FieldNames.Count
            Set orng = ActiveDocument.Range
            orng.Collapse 0
            orng.Fields.Add orng, wdFieldMergeField, Chr(34) & .FieldNames(i), False
            Set orng = ActiveDocument.Range
            orng.Collapse 0
            orng.InsertParagraphAfter
        Next i
    End With
    Set orng = Nothing
End Sub
