Mail Merge Font?



I'm doing some mail merges of large quantities of mailing lables, (11,000+).
My database file is Excel. On the labels I have the standard address, name,
city + I'm adding the barcodes. In my Excel file I change the barcodes to the
barcode font that is approved by the USPS. But when I do the merge into Word
it changes that font back to Times. Then I have to go through each label &
highlight the barcode & change it to the barcode font. A royal pain in the
butt when your doing lots of labels. Is there a way to keep the font the
right font when doing the merge or some way not to have to go through each
label & make the change? Anyone know? Thanks in advance.

Possibly try adding a \* charformat switch to the merge field and formatting
the m of mergefield with the desired font.

Hope this helps.
