Mail Merge fields - Word prints number fields without separator

When I add a field into a MS Word 2007 document using Add Mail Merge Fields, the field which is a number field shows up but without a number separator.  In other words, in ACT the number looks like 32,000 and in MS Word, it looks like 32000.  Please help.
