Word Mail Merge Problem

  bartonside 15:10 06 Jan 2010

I am attempting, for the first time, to set up some address labels for a mailing which I did regularly with Word 2003. However, with Word 2007 it is more complicated and I had to convert my database into an Excel worskheet first. I printed out the relevant help document and was getting on fine until I got to this: 'In the Microsoft Office Excel dialog box, for Named or cell range, select the cell range or worksheet that contains the information that you want to merge, and then click OK.' I may be being stupid but I don't know what the Excel dialogue box is. Can anyone help?

Try selecting the mailing tab then click on start mail merge and then step by step wizard. When it comes to selecting recipients choose existing list and then on the browse button look for and select you Excel worksheet. It is a good idea to have the first row of your excel sheet with meaningful titles.
