I am trying to preview a merge and I receieve the following error message:
Invalid Property Name at $1695 for the entire school. A price sheetis provided...".

I have a price of $1695 listed in my emaail and I guess the program is trying to interpret that as a mailmerge field. I want to include the price as shown. Can I change the delimiters?

Sorry for the late reply.

Please type $$ in the subject field where you need to have a $ character. For example if you need to have this fragment: "The product cost $1695" then you need to type it in message screen like this: "The product cost $$1695".

If you have the body of the email already composed (for example you have the body of the email saved into a word document) and you only copy/paste into the message edit in Easy Mail Merge (after you finished the wizard) you need to manually re-type the $$ characters. For example if you copy the example above into a mail merge session it will generate an error because Outlook generates an invisible html tag between these two signs (this happens only when you paste text that contain $$ characters). To correct this error you need to delete all the double $$ characters (only the double $$ characters) and write two new $$ characters (exactly the way it was only you have to delete and write them again).
