Users are able to complete mail merges through the Mail function of The Raiser's Edge to expedite the process of sending correspondence (e.g. gift acknowledgements, envelopes, reminders, etc.) to their constituents. Some users have noticed that their final merge documents do not hold the formatting of their mail merge templates after completing the merge process. For example, the font type and/or font size of the final merged document may appear different than the font type/size of the merge template.
Insert tables within the merge template in Microsoft Word so that the merge fields retain their formatting. This may be necessary because tables have their own format properties (e.g. font size, font type, spacing, etc.). Including tables will allow these merge fields to hold their own specific format instead of using the blanket format that is applied to the rest of the document.
