Am having some major difficulties with mail merge, and wondered if anyone could help? I want to produce a set of numbered raffle tickets for a christmas prize draw. The tickets have to be numbered twice, where the number appears once on the main body of the ticket, and once on the bit you tear off. A friend of mine has produced the ticket so that we can fit four on an A4 page, but I don't especially want to sit there altering the numbers on hundreds of tickets in order to print them. Is there a way to number them automatically, either with mail merge or another method? I can insert a field and merge to it, but setting up a data source with the numbers in it still involves me typing them if its a text field, but I can't get a numbered field to merge at all! I'm obviously doing somthing wrong.... anyone got any ideas?? I'm on a bit of a tight timescale too, which is why I'm asking on tmp.... where else could I ask hundreds of people all at once?!? Thanks in advance... all help much appreciated!
