So, you see stuff like <<FirstName>>, correct?
Great. Under the Mailings tab, there is a button called "Preview Results" - if it is lit up, click once on that and you should see that replaced with real data.
If it is grayed out, you'll need to select your data source again. You can do that from the Select Recipients button.
ok let me pull up the file
Also, when you open the file, it may ask if it can run a query - make sure you say yes.
it seems to work now. One more question then
when I referred certain fields to a particular data in the database and it was supposed to come back as number and it comes back as 0 what is happening
Is it supposed to be a number other than 0 or is it supposed to be formatted like 0.00 ?
It supposed to be a number such as 1,000 and it is imported as 0
I think it may be related to the prior problem and it was fixed when I opened the file
Ah, so it is working now?
Yes it looks like it is. I believe what happed is I try to add a field to the database when I was working on the word file too and ti came back this morning with an error regarding that field but now the other field seem to be working
so I guess thanks very much
Ah great. Let me know if you need anything else.
