Syntax

expression.InvalidAddress

expression   A variable that represents an MailMergeDataSource object.

Sub ExcludeRecords()
    Dim intRecord As Integer
    With ActiveDocument.MailMerge
        For intRecord = 1 To .DataSource.RecordCount
            .DataSource.ActiveRecord = intRecord
            If Len(.DataSource.DataFields("PostalCode").Value) < 5 Then
                With .DataSource
                    .Included = False
                    .InvalidAddress = True
                    .InvalidComments = "This record is removed " & _
                        "from the mail merge because its postal code" & _
                        "has less than five digits."
                End With
            End If
        Next
    End With
End Sub
