Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Mail Merge with Outlook contacts, part of Word 2010: Mail Merge.
Of the hundreds of thousands of mail merges completed in offices each day, the…vast majority use name and address information about people, the kind of data…that you and I would normally store in Microsoft Outlook.…Let's see how easy it is to use Outlook contacts as a data source for our mail merge.…Here is our letter, and we'll be picking up name and address information for use…in the address block and in the body of the letter in the areas that I have…highlighted in yellow, because they will be replaced with placeholders.…If I want to choose Microsoft Outlook Contacts as my data source, all I do is…choose, on the Mailings tab, and Start mail merge, from the Select Recipients…dropdown, Select from Outlook Contacts.…
Microsoft Word goes out and asks Outlook, what kind of contacts folders do…you have there for me?…And Outlook reports that it has two:…one is the Contacts folder that is standard with office, and the second is the…Suggested Contacts folder that Outlook creates itself.…But I have an additional folder here called Current Vendors. Why doesn't it…
