Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Completing the merge, part of Word 2016: Mail Merge in Depth.
- We have our primary mail merge file open in Word.…We've already checked for errors…using the Check for Errors command…in the Preview Results group.…Now we're ready to finish our merge…and combine out primary letter with records…from a data source to create a personalized letter…one for each of the 200 people in our data source.…There are two options for merging letters,…actually three options in total.…The third - sending email messages - we will talk about…in the next section of movies.…
We're going to talk now about editting individual documents…and printing documents.…Here's how to think of this.…The first choice - Edit Individual Documents -…says: merge all of these documents into one single file…that I can then examine and print.…So you'll end up with one document…that in this case will be 100 pages long,…one for each letter.…The second option says: don't create a document for me…to examine, send these right to the printer.…
If you need to keep a copy of the merged file for evidence…so that you can prove that you sent this…
