The text to be looked for.

Return Value

Boolean

This method corresponds to the Find Record button on the Mail Merge toolbar.

The FindRecord method does a forward search only. Therefore, if the active record is not the first record in the data source and the record for which you are searching is before the active record, the FindRecord method will return no results. To ensure that the entire data source is searched, set the ActiveRecord property to wdFirstRecord.

This example displays a merge document for the first record in which the FirstName field contains "Joe." If the record is found, the number of the record is stored in the numRecord variable.

Dim dsMain As MailMergeDataSource 
Dim numRecord As Integer 
 
ActiveDocument.MailMerge.ViewMailMergeFieldCodes = False 
Set dsMain = ActiveDocument.MailMerge.DataSource 
If dsMain.FindRecord(FindText:="Joe", _ 
 Field:="FirstName") = True Then 
 numRecord = dsMain.ActiveRecord 
End If
