Field Duplicates During Mail Merge

I am having this problem on two different custom templates.  On one of them, I have a custom field for a first name, e.g. <ZFirst Name>.  Let's say I have the value in there as 'John'.  When I perform the merge, it comes out as 'JohnJohn'.  A similar thing happens with a custom currency field.  For example, for the field <ZPrice> the value is '$399.00' but when the merge takes place it comes out as '$399.00$399.00'.  Has anyone else encountered this problem?  What's the fix for this?

Re: Field Duplicates During Mail Merge

Not something i've seen.  Try using the demo database and adding a field to a standard letter.  (try to keep it simple).  Can you recreate the problem?


send me the template if you wish, i'm happy to take look.
