Mail Merge Operations

Many businesses and other organizations communicate with their customers or members by means of letters, newsletters, and promotional pieces that are sent to everyone on a mailing list. The easiest way to generate a set of documents that are identical except for certain information-such as the name and address of the recipient-is to use the mail merge process. You can use the mail merge process to easily produce a set of personalized documents and mailing labels.

This tutorial guides you in studying the steps required to create form letters, email messages, envelopes, labels, catalogs, and directories that contain variable information. You study how to set up source documents, set up mail merge documents manually or by using the Mail Merge wizard, check mail merge documents for errors, preview mail merge operations, and produce merged documents in various final delivery formats.
