Merge Sequence work fine in directory mode, all other format section break stops it from working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried several way to get this to work, I have tried to build in Directory process, then once each page (user) has a seperate page I then tried to send via e-mail and it will not allow me to do this.

     

    I need to be able to use the merge sequence similar to the one on the Microsoft support page, but I need to remove the section breaks and only have a page break for each person and there details.

  • You can use Edit>Replace with ^b in the Find what: control and ^m in the Replace with: control to replace Section Breaks with Manual Page Breaks if that will get you want you want.

    It is not clear to me however what it is that you really are trying to do and referring to an unidentified "Microsoft support page" without giving the link to that page, means nothing.


    Hope this helps.
