        Mail Merge with switches
        I have the following mailmerge lines… they are doing what I want EXCEPT that the phone numbers are not formatted.
        I can’t figure out where/how to include the formatting so that the switches still work!

        I have Word 2016 and imported from excel (where they were formatted)
        Code I have is attached as an image, I can’t get it to paste in here as code.Mail Merge with switches
