SUMMARY

Word Error Message: “Recursive Include File not Allowed”

You placed INCLUDE instructions that form a circular string of references in the files you are merging with Print Merge. For example, suppose you have three documents named A.DOC, B.DOC, and C.DOC. A.DOC has an INCLUDE instruction that merges in B.DOC. B.DOC has an INCLUDE instruction that merges in C.DOC. C.DOC has an INCLUDE instruction that merges in A.DOC or B.DOC. Word would print in circles without stopping if it weren’t designed to forbid circular references.

Inspect and revise the INCLUDE instructions to break the circular reference.
