Hi Folks. Preparing a set of letters to club members using mail merge in 2007. All regular, clean and simple. However, I now need to number each of the seperate letters in sequence - sort of like a brief invoice number on each. Any practical ideas on how to do this during the preparation rather than numbering each manually? Thanks.

So what are you using for the source data? If an Excel Spreadsheet print the record number on each letter.

Insert > Quick Parts > Field > AutoNum

When you merge to a file you will see the numbers increment for each one

Hi both. Many thanks for your prompt interest and replies.

Sweep - using a simple Word table as a database.

Parry - perfect. Works like a bought one.

Much appreciated.
