What did we ever do without mail merge? If it’s part of your job to create marketing mailings, surveys, broadcast e-mail messages, or distributed faxes, you know how impossible (or at least time-consuming) it would be to try to complete a project like that by hand. Word’s mail merge feature enables you to create a document once and use it many times, which cuts down on the time you spend creating and sending. Mail merge also enables you to use data you’ve saved elsewhere—in a mailing list database, an address list, or your Outlook Contacts list.
