Word Err Msg: Merge Quotes Nested Too Deeply PSS ID Number: Q40742 Article last modified on 08-03-1993 PSS database name: M_WorD

Sometimes when doing print merge with Microsoft Word, the following error message is displayed, although the print merge may not be a nested merge:

Merge quotes too deeply nested

This error message is normally caused by a missing ending chevron (right international quotation mark, >>) around a merge field in the main document. The missing chevron location is usually towards the beginning of the file.

Closing all fields with the ending chevron (obtained by the keystroke SHIFT+OPTION+) corrects the error condition.
