Default Problem with ZIP code serial printing


Hello there,


I am trying to modify my serial printing of adress lables and envelopes in Word.


I have search the internet but could not find anything helpful.



After pressing Alt+F9 this one appears:

{ADRESSBLOCK\f"<<_COMANY_>><<_FIRSTO_>><<_LASTO_>> <<_SUFFIXO_>><<_STREET1_>><<_STREET2_>><<_POSTAL_> ><<_CITY_>><<_COUNTRY_>>"\|1032\c2\e"Ελλαδα"\d}


In the internet they wrote to change postal to {MERGEFIELD POSTAL #"00000;;"}. Do I have to set the {} extra? Do I have to leave the _ front and back?



My problem printing the ZIP codes for the lables/envelopes correctly is that eg. German ZIPs sometimes start with a 0 or Dutch and British have a combination of letters and numbers. The labeling refers to an Excel file.


I created the adresses manualy as well as I tried the block function of word to create adresses but I have the same problem with Germany and Netherlands.


Thanks for any ideas.


Elisabeth

1. Don't use the AddressBlock - insert the individual mergefields where you want them.
2. Don't us a numeric picture switch in the 'postal' mergefield - all that will do is mess up the alpha-numeric post codes.
3. Read Mailmerge Data Format Problems in the Mailmerge Tips & Tricks 'Sticky' thread at the top of this forum: https://www.msofficeforums.com/mail-...ps-tricks.html

Sorry, not helpful.


I have copied the field as in the threat mentioned



{QUOTE{SET Zip {MERGEFIELD ZipCode}}{IF{Zip}> 99999 {SET Zip {Zip \# "00000'-'0000"}}}"{=-{=-{Zip}-Zip}/2 \# 00000;;}{=-({Zip}*(-1)-Zip)/2 \# ;-0000;}"}


even in my manual list but does not work. It is just showing the inserted code when pushing again F9.


My manual list looks like this:


{MERGEFIELD"NAME"}{MERGEFIELD"SURNAME"}
{MERGEFIELD"STREET"}
{MERGEFIELD"COUNTRY_CODE"}{MERGEFIELD"ZIP"}{MERGEF IELD"CITY"}
{MERGERFIELD"COUNTRY"}


Any other helpful ideas.
