    I am creating a document that contains data from rows in an excel worksheet.
    My vision is to have a page or two at the beginning, explaining the document.
    Following that is, hopefully, a table of contents.
    Following that is, obviously, content. The content is created by merging a
    row of the excel worksheet at a time into "sections" until all the data is
    exhausted. Currently there are 43 rows. I've successfully put the data in,
    using mailmerge and the "next record" field. What happens is everything I've
    typed before within and after is repeated. What doesn't happen is the
    introductory pages because if I try to add them, they get repeated.
    A much desired bonus would be to create the table of contents with
    hyperlinks to each new section automatically, perhaps from the mergedata?
    Thanks

    There is a facility in Word to create a table of contents and this
    can be hyperlinked as well. Have you looked in the help file?
