Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Word 2016: Mail Merge in Depth.
- [Voiceover] If you have a premium membership to the lynda.com training library, you have access to the exercise files that I'll use throughout this course. You'll find all of the files in the folder called Exercise Files. After you download it, inside that folder, you will find the files ranked by chapter. You might consider placing those exercise files on the desktop just like I have, or in your Documents folder. You'll find the documents that I'm using within the chapter file. For example, we'll be using this Individual Letter in chapter one, and we'll also have data sources like an access database and request, and you'll find all of those in the appropriate chapter.
Even if you don't have access to these exercise files, you can still work along with me. Simply use your own Word documents and your own data sources, and I will be showing you how to create both of those as we go through the course.
