MAIL MERGES

Perform a Basic Mail Merge

The Annoyance:

I know that Word has a mass-mailing feature somewhere. Where is it, and how does it work?

The Fix:

The feature you're looking for is called "mail merge" and is located on the Tools menu. Exactly where it is and what it's called depends on your version of Word. In Word 2003, choose Tools → Letters and Mailings → Mail Merge to open the Mail Merge task pane (Figure 9-3, left); in Word XP, choose Tools → Letters and Mailings → Mail Merge Wizard to open the wizard, which looks the same as the Mail Merge task pane. The task pane or wizard then walks you through the six steps of specifying the document type, choosing the starting document, selecting recipients or creating a new list of recipients, laying out the document, previewing the document, and then completing the merge.
