Let's jump right in to creating a form letter so you can see how much time you could save with Word's mail merge. To get started, open a new document in Word and, from the menu bar, choose Tools | Letters and Mailings | Mail Merge. In the sidebar area, Word opens a Mail Merge helper that provides you with a wizard-like interface that walks you through the process.
Word's mail merge can be used to create form letters, e-mail messages, envelopes, labels, or directories. With a little imagination, these choices let you create just about any kind of document or communication you would need.
