For example, when you address mail to an individual at a corporate address in England, the name of the company should come first and then the name of the individual. In the United States, the name of the individual should come before the name of the company.
When you insert the address block from the Mail Merge Wizard into a mail merge document, the name of the individual always comes first, regardless of how the address is arranged in the address database.
