Can you tell me how to get custom mail merge fields to display in the Insert Field dialog? An example would be greatly helpful.
Thanks!

Hi Mike,

Generally there are 2 types of mail merge fields - predefined mail merge fields and source mail merge fields. If by custom fields you refer to the source mail merge fields (the ones that come from your data source), then you can insert them from the Insert Merge Field drop down of the Mailings ribbon tab as shown on the following screenshot:

You can also insert them by clicking the Insert Merge Field button directly (not the drop down) and selecting Mail Merge Source Field for field type in the dialog that opens.

Best Regards,

Thanks for the reply.
I guess i did not ask the right question.
My custom data source fields are not showing up in the insert field dialog list.
