Hour 14. Generating a Mail Merge > Creating a Directory Using the Merge Feature

Creating a Directory Using the Merge Feature

In step 1 of the Mail Merge Wizard (Select Document Type), you choose the type of main document you want to create. In addition to letters, envelopes, and labels, you can also choose to create a directory. A directory is different from a letter in that it places information from multiple records in your data source on the same page. This type of main document is very useful for printing a nicely formatted list of the names and addresses in your data source. Depending on the kinds of information you have in your data source, you might also use it to print a phone list, a catalog, a list of people and their job titles and occupations, and so on. Figure 14.25 shows a merged directory of names and addresses.
