When you use the "Use Address Book" feature in a mail merge document, only some fields from the contacts list are available to Word.


Some fields in the contacts list do not contain messaging application program interface (MAPI) properties; therefore, the converter (Wwpab.cnv) that Word uses to interpret the information from the Personal Address Book does not recognize these fields.


For additional information on using contact lists with Word, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

164401 OL97: Fields Missing Inserting a Contact into Word

167770 OL97: Field Differences Between Outlook and Word Mail Merge

The following table lists the properties supported by the converter, including which address books they can be used with. A maximum of 12 properties can be used at one time.

For additional information on how to use these properties, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

If a field you require is listed in this list but does not appear when you use insert address, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
