can a script control word/mail merge to send merged documents to the printer one at a time. we are using merge to populate fields in a booklet and using the multifunction finisher to gather, fold and staple. Process works great when single documents/records are sent down. When a mail merge is launched, it sends the job down as one long string. the finisher attempts to gather ALL documents in one huge booklet. this is a monthly job, 500 to 5000 booklets.

 



Software/Hardware used:
XP Pro, Word 2007, HP Laserjet 9050dn with C8088A multifunction finisher.

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone found an answer to this question? I am running into the same challenge.

An automated way to print booklets with mail merge one by one, instead of MSWord sending the entire file to the printer would be great. Beats having to print labels and affix to booklets.

Hoping for a quick response….
