2.1.486 Part 4 Section, ADDRESSBLOCK

a. The standard does not explain the format of the argument of the \f switch in the ADDRESSBLOCK field.

In Word, placeholders in this switch's field-argument reference a fieldMapData element. (“[ECMA-376] Part 4 §2.14.15; fieldMapData (External Data Source to Merge Field Mapping)”). The placeholder will be expanded to the current mail merge entry in the column specified by the value in the name element where the mappedName of the placeholder matches the mappedName of the fieldMapData.

The following are the possible placeholders and corresponding mapped merge field names are reserved:






Courtesy Title






First Name



Middle Name



Last Name






Spouse/Partner Courtesy Title



Spouse/Partner Nickname



Spouse/Partner First Name



Spouse/Partner Middle Name



Spouse/Partner Last Name



Spouse/Partner Suffix






Address 1



Address 2









Postal Code



Country or Region

Word maps the <<_SUFFIX1_>> and /s1 placeholder to mappedName Spouse/Partner Nickname, and maps the placeholder <<_NICK1_>> or /n1 to the empty string.

b. The standard does not define the format of the argument of the \l switch.

Word defines the format of this switch to be any Language Code value from the table in ST_LangCode ("[ECMA-376] Part 4 §2.18.52; ST_LangCode").

This note applies to the following products: 2007, 2007 SP1, 2007 SP2.
