Default Mail Merge Grouping

I apologize if I amasking my question in the wrong formum. Anyway, I have a mail mergeproject. Mail merge standard emails I can handle no problem (at least Ithink). My question is I need to mail merge information to let's say anagent whose name is Desktop Agency. Desktop Agency has 5 overduereports due. My excel spreadsheet has 5 rows with a column for jobnumbers late and a column for Agent Name. Job numbers aredifferent. When I mail merge my emails, I end up with 5 different emailsas opposed to one email listing all 5 jobs which are late. How do Iachieve creating a merge to Desktop Agency listing all 5 jobs late in one emailrather than sending out 5 emails. Plus I need to use emails from a separate excel file. So, I will be using two spreadsheets to create one email (letter).

This is a many to one mail merge - see Merge Many To One
However you would have to create a worksheet that combines your worksheet with your mailmerge data and to use the above method you would not be able to leave column A empty.

Another option would be to use a DATABASE field in a normal ‘email’ mailmerge main document and a macro to drive the process. An outline of this approach can be found at:
Many to one email merge using tables - Microsoft Community
Conversely, if you're using a relational database or, Excel workbook with a separate table with just a single instance of each of the grouping criteria, a DATABASE field in a normal ‘email’ mailmerge main document could be used without the need for a macro. An outline of this approach can be found at:
Mail Merge - To a Word Table on a Single Page - Microsoft Community
For some working examples (though not specifically for emails), see:
