Unhappy Mail Merge-Rookie--Needs Help

Hello, beautiful people, please help me with this Mail Merge issue.


I am trying to do a one to many Mail Merge with data from excel into word and whenever the name has one than one record the Name field gets duplicated (see image attached) the name repeat the same amount time as the record for this client.

i.e.-- Hello Allison[~]Allison[~]Allison[~]Allison[~]Allison
1061252 Single-Family
1061253 Single-Family
1062489 Single-Family
1057577 Single-Family
1062439 Single-Family


thanks

This looks like you may be using my Many to One mail merge add-in - Merge Many To One . The issue shown arises because you have declared the name field, which contains 'Allison' here, as a child field. Only the fields in the table are child fields.
