Hour 23. Office 2003 Integration > Using Contacts for Mail Merge

Using Contacts for Mail Merge

Mail merge is possibly the most popular reason for accessing Outlook data from Word. Mail merge makes it easy to create address labels, personalized letters, and address books. You can start mail merges from either Outlook or Word, and a number of options are available to you for configuring the mail merge.

By opening Word and using the Tools, Letters and Mailings, Mail Merge menu selection to begin the merge, you limit the number of contact fields available for use as merge fields to common mail fields. When you start the merge from Outlook, it makes all contact fields available to use in the merge, although you have the option to include only the fields used in the current view.
