Why is it important to match fields?

If Word can't match fields in an Address block with column headings in your data file, you'll see errors in your merged documents.

If you don't match fields, you won't be able to preview the merged documents.

You match fields after you preview the merged documents in order to complete the merge.

Once you choose to preview your documents, the merge is complete and you can't make changes.
