Chapter 24. Assembling Documents with Merge > Sorting and Selecting Records

Sorting and Selecting Records

Managing the data in your data source, whatever it might be, is an important part of your office automation system. You'll save hours if you can keep the information in a single source up to date. If you've been creating small data files for every project, stop right now. The more data files you have, the less likely you are to keep up with them.

It's easier to create larger data files where you can update everything at once. You can sort the records and then select only the records that you want to work with. For example, if you want to send a notice only to people living in a certain city, you can sort the records by the City field and then select the records that contain that city.
