Hi @Anthony_Costa,

Can you please tell me where to download the mail merge field document? I’m following the links in the help file but it seems to be sending me in circles.

We’re wanting to update some of our custom document templates before EOFY.

Thanks!
Christine

Thanks so much @Anthony_Costa,

I thought I’d tried doing that earlier but it was filling in details of that particular client I had open.

This has worked a treat.
