The concept of a mail merge is quite simple. You take a contact list, for example, and merge that list with a document. You could use this capability to create individual letters for a list of customers, for example. But while mail merge is simple in concept, in practice, things can get a little complicated. But have no fear, because in this video course I'll guide you step-by-step through all the elements you'll need to create a successful mail merge.
We'll start off with an overview of the mail merge feature and we'll look at a couple of quick examples of creating an envelope, or mailing labels. We'll then examine the various ways you can create or prepare the source data for your mail merge. In other words, the list of contacts, for example, that you'll use for the final mail merge. We'll then take a look at the various ways you can create the document for your mail merge and how to add the details from your source data, your mailing list for example, into that document. Finally, we'll put all of these tools together, merging data with our document to create our final result.
