Mailing label mail merge not removing NextRecord merge fields

Thread ID:

Asked On November 28, 2012 02:57 PM UTC

I created a sample to do a mail merge for mailing labels which contains the Next Record merge field codes so that many can be on one page.  When the merge runs it puts the data in but the output still has the <<Next Record>> text in it.  I have the following 3 things set but it doesn't appear to do anything.

doc.MailMerge.RemoveEmptyParagraphs = true;
doc.MailMerge.RemoveEmptyGroup = true;
doc.MailMerge.ClearFields = true;

Why is the <<Next Record>> text left in the document?

If I leave out the next record fields then it duplicates the same address in every item on the page and creates additional pages for each row in the table.  This means that the code is picking up on the next record fields but I would expect that they would not be dumped to the output.
