Mail merge not including all records on print

Hi guys, I've spent months trying to get a greeting card template to
work properly with Mail Merge Office 07.

I have created an A4 page with 1 column and 2 rows: this is an image
of my setup: https://dl.getdropbox.com/u/403824/word merge fault.jpg

No matter how many records I select, I never get a merged doc with all
records included. In today's exercise, I chose six records, ensured
they all appeared under Preview then hit "merge to new doc". Only four
of them came through.

If I create a template with one record per page, it's fine - all
records come through, but then I have to muck about deleting the page
break to fit two on a A4 page. Surely if I can merge address labels 20
to a page, a merge file with 2 to a page shouldn't be too hard.

What am I doing wrong? Please help me sort this out?

thanks in advance,
Jo

Delete the <<Next Record>> field from the second row. Or better, move it
before the first mergefield in that row and delete it from the first row.
