Chapter 14. Using Mail Merge Effectively > Opening an Existing Word Data Source

Opening an Existing Word Data Source

The previous sections focused on creating and building a new data source based on a Word table. But in many cases, all the information you need for your mail merge already exists. In this section, you learn how to use a table in an existing Word document as your data source. Then, you learn how to use Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Access files as your data sources.

After you've created a main document, display the Mail Merge Helper dialog box by clicking the Mail Merge Helper button on the Mail Merge toolbar. Click Get Data, and choose Open Data Source. The Open Data Source dialog box appears; browse to and select the file containing your data source, and click Open.
