NEXT

Instructs Microsoft Word to merge the next data record into the current resulting merged document, rather than starting a new merged document. The Next field produces no printed result. Word uses this field when you set up a mailing label and envelope main document during a mail merge.



Remarks

* To list information from several data records in the same document, such as a membership directory or a price list, select the Directory main document type in step 1 of the Mail Merge Wizard. The NEXT field is useful, however, to print a specific number of data records in one resulting merge document.
* Insert a NEXT field after the first set of merge (MERGEFIELD) fields in the main document; otherwise, Word skips merging the first data record. Repeat the set of merge fields and the NEXT field in the main document only the number of times it takes to fill one page or to print the number of data records you want.
* NEXT fields cannot be used in footnotes, endnotes, annotations, headers, footers, or data sources. A NEXT field cannot be nested within any other field or used with the SKIPIF field.
* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com
