Part 11. Performing Mass Mailings > Starting the Main Document

Starting the Main Document

After you start a new, blank document, click the Save button on the Standard toolbar.

Locate the folder where you want to save the document, give the document a name that ends with Main, and click Save.

Open the Tools menu, choose Letters and Mailings, and select Mail Merge to display the Mail Merge task pane.

Click the Letters option button in the Mail Merge task pane to select it.

INTRODUCTION

In this phase of the mail-merge process, you simply tell Word which document you want to use as the main document. You can either open an existing main document or start a new one. If you start a new one, as described in these steps, you don't have to type any of the document now; you simply save a blank document. In “Completing the Main Document” later in this part, you come back to the main document and enter both regular text and special merge fields, telling Word where to insert each piece of information from the data source.


Scroll down if necessary to display the bottom of the task pane, and click Next: Starting document.

Click the Use the current document option button to select it.

Scroll down if necessary to display the bottom of the task pane, and click Next: Select recipients. Continue to the next task.
