Error message: Cannot send catalog merge document directly to mail, fax, or printer
This article was previously published under Q211763
When you attempt to merge a catalog mail merge main document to a printer, to electronic mail, or to electronic fax in Microsoft Word, the following error message appears:
You cannot send a catalog created by merging documents directly to mail, fax, or a printer.
The error message occurs because you must merge a catalog to a new documentbefore you can print it or send it in e-mail.
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
- Open the catalog main document.
- On the Mail Merge toolbar, click Merge to new document.
After the merge has completed to a new document, you can send the merged document to a printer, electronic mail, or electronic fax.
