Is it possible to implement validation rules in a Word mail merge? I want to set up the Word file so that if a given test fails, Word will take some action when attempting to complete the merge. Here's an example:
I am creating letters for a large excel file of people which will show their name and mailing address at the top. If any record has a blank value for the "Last Name" field, for example, Word will not allow the merge and will instead display a message to the user.
I'm happy to write something in VBA if necessary but I didn't know if Word has any kind of functionality for this sort of purpose. Using Word 2013 but have access to any version 2003+.
