  • Help with mail merge- I need to create a mailing list!

    Ok, pretty self explainatory. I received an address list in Excel and would like to use it to create mailing labels so I can send out postcards. Its been pretty frustrating and truth be told, I don't have time to screw around with it as much as I have had to. Can someone help me with this? There has to be an easier way.........

    Good luck. Mail merge in Office has been the thorn in my side for a long time.

        Mail Merge!!! Two jobs ago when I used to use it I would be like :rant: but at my last job I had cheat notes -- oh how I wish I had them now to share with you, because I remember the frustration. :verymad: It just seems like such a cumbersome set of steps to set it up. I know this doesn't help get your postcards done, but I hope it helps to hear that others have felt your pain before.

            DQ,

            Don't be silly, you only need to send me one special valentine, not several hundred. You are SO sweet to have tried, I will note your effort. Strong work.

              You basically define your data source to be your excel doc.. and insert fields as your place holders in your document.. and then run the merge and decide how you want the output to be.

              Microsoft's build in help is great.. and they have free online training sessions on it too
