Default Save merged document as concatenated merge field values

Hi everyone,



Newb with his first posted question.
I have a merge main doc that connects to a data source. The merge completes correctly. My question is: can I use vba to save the merged document with a file name that consists of the concatenation of several merge field values. The recipient list is set to just one record at a time to avoid having to split the merge in order to save each doc with its own file name. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For some code to get you started, see: http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/general...ml#post3710126

Note: Once the merge has been executed, there are no mergefields to query, so doing this retrospectively would require quite a different approach.

Thank you for the quick reply. I will try adapting your code to my specific problem tomorrow, at work.

For strFolder can I just use the path to the desktop? and not use the GetFolder()?

Also, how do I code or do I need all these parameters?
ExportFormat:= what do I use for docx?
BitmapMissingFonts:=True
UseISO19005_1:=False

I just want to save the merged document as .docx

Thanks for the help.

Yes, you could specify a particular path for strFolder, instead of using the results of GetFolder.

You can't use the ExportAs FixedFormat method for Word files; instead you need the SaveAs2 method. For an implementation that uses both a designated path and saving the output as Word files, see post #22 in the link.
