Word Err Msg: Unknown Field Name, Macro Aborted After

PSS ID Number: Q50327 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




In Word versions 5.00, the error message:

data: Unknown field name, macro aborted after <<data…

appears if the data statement in the main document of a print merge has been inserted from the glossary. Word anticipates a macro after finding a chevron as the first character in the document, which is actually the data instruction for print merge. This problem also happens any time a chevron or greater than/less than symbol is included in the glossary entry. To insert the main document, a caret (^) must follow the glossary name.
