Default Use a mail merge Field as the final doc filename

Is there a way to use one of the mail merge Fields as part of the Filename for the merged document?



I found this text online which implies that there is a way, but couldn't find any more information:

To Save the document, choose Finish Merge -> Save. You can save the document for all recipients or for a range. You can save all the documents in one file or you can save each instance (per recipient) as a separate file. You can select a field name to be used as the unique part of the file name, as well as additional text to include in the file name.

Thanks.

Hi Dave,

That can be done, but requires vba rather than the basic mailmerge tools built into Word. See, for example: http://www.gmayor.com/individual_merge_letters.htm
