Are you spending a lot of time compiling source addresses and name files into one usable document?
Stop wasting time and start saving it!
Microsoft’s mail merge is a timesaving feature used to merge the names and addresses from an address list file into letters, labels, and envelopes. You can also use mail merge to customize the message within your letter so that it is unique to each person. If this all sounds too technical, don’t worry! During this easy-to-understand session, we’ll give you an overview of the mail merge process and terminology, and teach you how to:
- Set up the main document (e.g. letter, envelope, labels).
- Set up the source document (names and addresses file).
- Connect the source file to the main document.
- Use the mail merge fields Address Block, Greeting Line and Insert Merge Field.
- Insert fields from the source file.
- Merge the main document with the source file.
- Make edits during the merge process.
