I'm wondering if you're being misled by the dialog you get when you click
Merge to New Document. Even when you have checked off specific records in
the Mail Merge Recipients dialog, the default setting in the merge dialog
(I'm not sure what the title of the dialog is) is "All." That just means
that you want to include all records rather than a specific range, but you
will still get only the records you have selected.
