Reported issues

Not bugs, so we can't fix them...

  1. PATools Merge Suite. In some cases the software may report that a field exists in the main document which does not have a header in the source data. To the user they may appear both to be there. If this happens, check the formatting of the header cell - it may need setting to General format under Numeric, or alternatively you can change an option in the software from Text to Values.
  2. PDF Creation fails. Users of Excel 2007 wishing to produce pdf files may require the Microsoft add-in available from Microsoft here.
IMPORTANT NOTE on Microsoft Outlook security
