Chapter 9. OLE, Mail Merge, and Office Applications

Chapter 9. OLE, Mail Merge, and Office Applications

By this point, you should have wrestled Word more or less into submission—unless you're performing mail merges or using Word together with other Office applications (in which case, read this chapter), or you're using Word on the Mac (in which case, see Chapter 10).

This chapter starts by nailing the key object linking and embedding (OLE) annoyances: how to choose between linking and embedding, and how to deal with broken links after one of your colleagues has made the wrong choice. The chapter then shows you how to deal with the grievances typically aired about mail merging, from using filtering and fields to create a smarter mail merge to convincing Word that a document really isn't a merge document anymore.
