  • Word icon course pack | Publicly viewable | v. 2010

Using Word, Excel and Outlook together, to send personalised emails to a list of recipients.

The mailmerge function in Microsoft Office is a powerful tool for combining data from a list in Excel with standard text in Word to create a set of letters or other documents, each with personalised details.

This course uses an example of producing and sending a set of emails (using Outlook). Some tips are included, which could save you time and frustration. The examples use Office 2010, but the principles will apply to using other versions and some other software.
