It’s that time of year again. The Holidays are here and we are all going to be sending out cards and emails. At McCombs we’ll be sending all kinds of things during this last month of the semester. Many of us will be doing some Mail Merging and some of us for the first time in Microsoft Office 2007.
Mail Merge is a feature in Microsoft Word. You use mail merge when you want to create a set of documents, such as a form letter or an email that is sent to many customers. Each letter has the same kind of information, with one or more pieces of unique information. For example, each letter can be personalized to address each customer by name. The unique information in each letter comes from entries in a data source, like an Excel spreadsheet with customer names, addresses, or emails, or the Contacts folder of your Outlook mailbox.
The Training Team has put up a few very helpful links on the McCombs Tech Wiki to help you through the Mail Merge season.
