Preview Results a Merge in Publisher: Overview

            You can preview results of a merge in Publisher to see the results of a merge without actually sending the mail merge to a printer or even having to create another “output” publication for review. You will use the buttons in the “Preview Results” button group on the “Mailings” tab in the Ribbon to preview the results in the merge publication. This can help you spot errors prior to performing the mail merge.

            To do this, open your merge publication and then click the “Preview Results” button in the “Preview Results” button group on the “Mailings” tab in the Ribbon. This will show a preview of the merge results in the publication window. You can use the arrow buttons that appear to the right of the “Preview Results” button to move through the records, where you can inspect them for errors in the publication window. Once you are finished, simply click the “Preview Results” button again to turn the preview off.
