Record Selection Rules in Template Not Applied to Document PSS ID Number: Q100994 Article last modified on 07-14-1994

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c

WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Windows operating system, versions 3.0 and 3.1

Summary:

If you create a template that contains print merge Record Selection settings, Word for Windows does not apply these rules to any document based on the template. Page 637 of the Word for Windows “User’s Guide” incorrectly states the following:

…record selection rules you specify for the template will be used in all new main documents you create from the template–you don’t have to select new rules for each document.

Workaround

Use the Record Macro command on the Tools menu to create an AutoNew macro in the template that applies the print merge record selection rules. The AutoNew macro will apply these rules to each new document based on the template.

We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
