Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer!

engr.najeeb :

Can you please explain your question?

JACUSTOMER-h4493rci- :

I have put alot of merge fields into a pre-printed word doc. Now they want to change some of the pre-printed stuff. I don't want to start adding from scratch all the merge fields to the new doc.

engr.najeeb :

Do you mean merged fields in a table?

JACUSTOMER-h4493rci- :

some are in a table and some are not

engr.najeeb :

For the one those are not in a table, what do you mean by merge?

JACUSTOMER-h4493rci- :

i am doing a mail merge. some of the mail merge data fields are conditional statement and some are just simple name and address

engr.najeeb :

So you just want to copy only merged fields from the document (be it in table or otherwise) and leave everything else as is?

JACUSTOMER-h4493rci- :

yes

engr.najeeb :

Let me check.

engr.najeeb :

That I guess needs some kind of VB macro to be written for Word.

JACUSTOMER-h4493rci- :

so the answer is no

engr.najeeb :

I will opt out for one of your programming experts who might help you with this, if you like.

JACUSTOMER-h4493rci- :

ok

engr.najeeb :

The answer is yes and it can done through a VB macro.
