Introduction To Mail Merge

 In mail merge

Mail merge is a tool that is designed to make it easier for you to create a set of documents that are alike but contain different and changeable data components. Mail merge will help you save time and improve efficiency by automating the process of entering regulated pieces of data like names and addresses into a document.

As an example, a form letter could be associated with a group of contacts in Outlook, and the letter could possibly have a merge field for each contact’s address, and one for the related contact’s name as part of the letter’s salutation. Mail merge isn’t just for the bulk creation of mass mailing letters and envelopes. In fact, mail merge can be very beneficial when it comes to creating a variety of documents.
