I created this mail merge training for my co-workers at Spark, right before our program was set to launch. It's a busy time when we're creating a lot of documents. All of them were able to mail merge afterward, saving lots of time! For a better version (where you'll be able to see notes), check out http://kevinverhoff.com/portfolio/

  • Why mail merge, It’s a really good tool that helps you make professional documents by “pasting” en masse text into form letters. It’s a little like photoshop (see ridiculous Obama picture) for words. And it can help you do your work “Like a boss”
  • Mail merge connects lists in excel with a document in word to create multiple documents. It takes the columns in excel and fills them into the blanks in a word document. The result is multiple documents personalized for the each reader.
  • There’s three basic steps to mail merge:1. Set up your excel spreadsheet with the names or objects you want to use to fill the document. 2. Set up the word document (eg: type your form letter) with blank spaces for where excel will fill in the gaps.3. Merge the documents together
  • Here’s an example for step 1
  • Example for step 2
  • This is how you do step three. Click “tools” and open the “mail merge manager.”
  • A box will pop up. Pick the type of document you want to create. If it’s labels, a new box will ask you what size labels you want.
  • The next thing to do is to open the data source. Click “Get List” and open “Open Data Source.” Find your document.
  • Loading the document can take your computer a LONG time! Be patient. You’re almost done.
  • Once it’s done loading, pick the excel page you want. Click okay.
  • Then, just slide the parts over!
  • Final step: Open it into a new document or print it!
  • And that’s it. Set up excel. Set up word. Merge ‘em together. Like a boss.
  • Objective met!
  • Now you’re mergin’ like a boss!
