How To: Mail Merge Charts in Word Templates

Naturally, a Microsoft Word mail merge template does not allow you to merge charts. With Zocuments however, you can.

Insert a chart into your document template:

Locate the Chart Series labels, and convert them to mail merge fields by surrounding the labels with double curly braces on each side, e.g:

To mail merge a chart in the template, a list of numbers must be provided to as the merge value.

{
  "Effective Rate": "2,2,2,2",
  "Average Rate":   "3,3,3,3",
  "Marginal Rate":  "3,4,3,4"
}

The Series Label in the chart is updated to remove the merge field, leaving it's label in place.
