Unanswered: Need help formatting mail merge file please
I have never done a mail merge before and I am at quite a loss here!
I have tried to use the mail merge but it seems to expect me to have some sort of premade mail merge data file is a specific format. My problem is that what I have is a list of approximately 500 addresses that I wish to print envelopes for. This list is an ascii text list and is not in any type of special mail merge format.
My question is this: Is it possible for me to format this list in a particular way so that it can be used to perform my mail merge? Can I simply add the appropriate delimiters to my text file? I have tried to determine the format but with no success.
Please tell me that I do not have to type in each of these 500 addresses one by one to create my mail merge file.
Can anyone help me with advice on how I could format this text file to perform a mail merge?
