Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching a Word document to an email message, part of Word 2016: Mail Merge in Depth.
- [Voiceover] I have a report that I want to send…to a number of different people.…And I have all of their email addresses in a file.…That file can be any of the data source types…that we've looked at previously.…Excel or Outlook contacts, Microsoft Access,…any database I can connect to.…And I want to send this report as a Word document.…Now if I wanted to send it as a PDF,…or I wanted to send PowerPoint or something else,…that's not this movie.…This movie focuses on the use of…the Mail Merge capabilities of Word…to send Word documents as attachments.…
I have Shaken and Stirred, this document for us to work with…which you'll find in the Exercise Files in Chapter Two.…And I'm actually going to customize this.…I don't need to, but I'm going to.…Because it's kind of a cool thing to do…while we're in the business of doing Mail Merge.…So this report is Fifty Years of Climate Studies…in the Great Lakes, and I'm going to then center this…and add a little bit of Mail Merge to it.…It's going to say Created for,…and then have a name here.…
