Mail Merge Word 2010 to email

Q: Mail Merge Word 2010 to email

Running Windows 7 machine with Office 2010 Professional. Just discovered that from Word I can send out mass emails (I am the email blaster for our organization) that show up in email as JUST addressed to the recipient without using bcc. Word 2010 BOMBS 75-90% of the time when I click on MAILINGS, Start Mail Merge, Email messages. If I do happen to get past there, when I click on Select Recipients Word bombs, then reboots. Very frustrating since each message I send out must be sent 3 times to get all of our people (more than 50 messages at a time are forbidden by my ISP).

Obviously Word and Outlook are both 2010.

Any fixes or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!

I have a word document set up with fields that I want to create a mail merge from a Query. When I go through the steps to add my query as the source then click on edit recipients there are no recipients. I have tried the same steps with other queries that I have and it works. I'm not sure why the query I want to use isn't working. The query I have set up does have a lot of expressions. Here is an example IIf([fie dt] Between #8/1/2010# And #7/31/2011#,[fie dt]+1096,Null) I have tried to change the expression and it still doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi I am just trying to learn how to mail merge with word 2010

I start Word then click on Mailings, then click on start mail merge, then click on envelopes, then select the size of envelope, then select recipients, and all works ok except the address block is almost at the bottom of the envelope no matter what setting I use.

I know I can grab this address block and move it anywhere.

But is there not a way to make the default position higher on the envelope please

Also I see using this method it prints the City County and post code on the same line

Is there a better way to select addresses and print without having to alter every ones position please

A:Word 2010 Mail Merge


I found a little more information here:
Below is what the site has to say on the matter. It seems to agree with what I've done. I even tried to change my DATE field to a regular MERGEFIELD populated with a date and that did not work either. I do not understand what I am doing wrong here.
Testing for events that occur before or after a certain date

When running a mail merge, you may want to test for events that happen before or after a certain date. Mail merge does not convert dates to numbers, so if you cannot automatically derive a date number from the date in the data file, as you could in (say) Excel, a different plan is called for.
Let's say the date comes into Word in the format d/MM/yyyy or 1/10/2002 (1st October 2002) from a MERGEFIELD called Start_Date. In this example, we are looking to identify records with Start_Date entries before 1st October 2002.

The above would appear the logical check, but the check treats the date as a number and identifies that number as 1, which is the first part of the number before the slash '/'. All dates other than the first of the month will be greater than 1, so all will produce the result "False".
We therefore need to display the date in numbers that represent the date in a unique way by using the date mask yyyyMMdd which displays the date as a series of digits for year month and finally day, without any breaks. This is a number that the conditional field will view as a whole.

Thus any date before 1/10/2002 would produce "True" and any other date would produce "False"

I just upgraded to Microsoft Office 2010 and when I try to use mail merge for Christmas card labels, I get clear down to the final formating and get an error message that says "not enough memory." This is very discouraging because of all the time and effort to download the addresses from Outlook. What gives with Word 2010? It seems to crash a lot, produce many "not responding" messages, and many of the windows within Word are funky and hard to read.

Lets not overlook the obvious, it may indeed be memory.
Bring up task scheduler to determine how much memory you actually do have.
Press alt+cntrl+delete and then click on performance tab to check remaining memory.
Crashes can, also, be caused by memory.

A:Word 2010 Mail merge issue

Mail merge in Word can be a bit fiddly and the details keep changing between versions but it generally works - eventually.
The only suggestion I can think of is, when you come to the 'create new document' bit in the merge, you go into 'File - Page set-up' and set the template envelope to match the printer's settings rather than leaving it until you press 'Merge' or 'Print'.

Hi All,

I am trying to do an e-mail merge from a database that is saved on my hard drive.

According to the help files in WORD 2000, I should be able to do this, similar to sending form letters, only e-mail instead.

I can get everything set up and working, right up to the Merge dialog box, but all I have to select for Merge To, is 'New Document,' or 'Printer.' According to the WORD 2000 help files, there should be an option called 'Electronic Mail.' There is not, and I don't know why. I am apparently missing something, but I can't figure it out.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated. Any thoughts as to what else I may run into--difficulty wise--would be appreciated also.

One of the problems your going to face is getting labeled as a spammer. If your sending these internally it may not be a problem. The standard answer for this is to Outsource this if your sending over 100. Good decision not to launch the real one yet.

On the 2nd, in FRONT of the first merge field, you must have a Word field "next record"

What is the quickest way to create a mail merge in Word 97.

A:Word 97 Mail Merge

Some pointers:

I personally prefer using Excel as my data source (get data, change files of type to Excel). The mail merge helper will actually use a Word table as the data source (create data source) if you follow through the steps.

Regardless, your column headings in the data source need to be in row 1 and the first record of data must be in row 2.

Follow the steps in the mail merge helper. Generally, you'll use "active document" when prompted, except when performing the actual merge--use new document.

When you've put the codes into the letter, labels, etc., I suggest testing it (use the <<abc>> button on the mail merge toolbar), and then saving it as a template. Close it, hit file-new whenever you want to use that merged letter, label, etc.

Recognize that you're creating two files. The data source (put "data" into the name somewhere) and the coded file (put "merge" in the name somewhere).

Check here, if you can. 2000 and 97 are virtually the same when it comes to mail merge:

I have a letter that I want to email out to a group of 50-100 clients but I want it to be personal with their name in the letter.
Is there a way to do a mail merge with a contact group from outlook and then email each letter for the individual person?
I know how to do a mail merge but that would be for printing and mailing.
I know I could take the time and email each letter individually but that would take a while.
I have Office Pro 2007

never mind i figured it out. The only tricky part was trying to add and attachment.
I had to save the file to my website and then provide a link to the document so they could open it.

I'm unable to edit data sources in Word. It's stand alone (doesn't have MS Access installed).

When following through the usual process I press EDIT and all I get is the list of labels, not the Data Form that allows me to edit individuals details. It's as if it's been turned off!!

Hope I've explained this clearly enough!!!

I work for a management company, so we use Office 2003 (Basic Edition) for a whole bunch of stuff. My question has to do with the Mail Merge option in MS Word. I type all the leases for my company, so being able to use the Mail Merge would be awesome. I am not very computer literate, and was wondering if anyone knows a good site for a tutorial, or if they know how to use the Mail Merge option. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

One of my colleagues at Work has discovered that following an upgrade from Word 97 to Word XP, the Data Source fields within Mail Merge no longer show the field's contents in full. Instead only half of the sentence is visible in the right hand pane. Then, when she selects the source to add it to the document, it is still only showing half of it. This did not used to happen with Word 97.


Is there a way of increasing a fields character length, so that the full intended sentence or data to be merged shows up after adding it to the document ? If so please advise on how this can be done.

Many Thanks

Been having a problem with editing the recipient list in mail merge. When I go to save the edited list, I get one of two errors- a "read only" error if saving to a network drive, or a "insufficient permission" if saving to a local drive.

I've been able to duplicate this problem on multiple machines, with multiple files in both the .doc and docx. format. The data files are tables in Word, I have not tried duplicating the issue with Excel or Access datasources.

Of course, I have made sure the data files are not actually read only...

A:Excel/Word Mail Merge

Dear TSGF: No one ever answered my post, so I assume, as is always dangerous, that no one knew the answer. However, I figured it out even though it is not intuitively obvious from the MS standpoint! Here's the answer to my own question"

If you do not have Excel ODBC Drivers, Please install them in this way :

1) Click on Start --> Settings --> Control Panel

2) Select 'Data Sources (ODBC)' and press Enter key.

3) Goto 'System DSN' tab (3rd tab out of 7 tabs) in the "ODBC Data Source Administrator" dialog box.

4) Click on ADD.

5) Select 'Driver do Microsoft Excel (*.xls)' from select driver list box.

6) Click on Finish

Now you will see 'ODBC Microsoft Excel Setup' dialog box.

7) Type a name in 'Data Source Name' and click OK.

Now, Microsoft Excel ODBC Drivers are installed onto your system.

NOTE : You must install Excel ODBC Drivers prior to using mail merge facility.The Microsoft Excel ODBC driver must already be installed.

NOTE: In the Select Table dialog box, you will see all the tables in the workbook, not just the ones from the first sheet.

To connect to Excel using ODBC, follow these steps:

1) From the Get Data list, click Open Data Source.

2) Locate and select the Microsoft Excel file. In the Open Data Source dialog box, make sure that the Select Method check box is selected.

3) Click Open.

4) In the Confirm Data source dialog box, select "Excel Files via ODBC (*.xls)," and click OK.

5) In the Select Table dialog box, select a Named range from the list (the lists contains the available named ranges) and Click OK.

6) Edit the main document and continue with the merge process.

I'm trying to build a database to use just the labels option of the "mail merge" feature of WORD.
However, in my home edition of XP, I don't have excel. So, to create a database of companies, addresses and towns I was going to use a WORD table to become my database for mail merge to "draw" from.
When I went to create mailing labels from this document (a WORD table) I got an error message that says Microsoft Works does not recognize this database.

Also, I tried to enter each address singly to create a single label, when I went to adjust the column and row it would not let me, hence creating typed text over and over on the same mailing label(?). Help?

Can someone advise me on how to create approx. 300 different mailing labels.

I’m using the Microsoft Word mail merge feature to merge data from a Microsoft Works database file onto labels. I’m able to do that successfully and now want to automate that process into a macro in Word. I recorded this process in a macro in Word but when I executed the macro, the mail merge process did not work. I went into the macro Visual Basic code and the only line generated was:

ActiveDocument.MailMerge.MainDocumentType = wdMailingLabels

There was no code generated that reflected the mail merge steps where I specified the database file that contains the data to merge and choosing the label form to use.
Any clues on why the macro did not record the steps needed to duplicate what I was able to successfully do manually?

A:Solved: Word and Excel Mail Merge

You merely have to name the Excel spreadsheet as the source of the data for the mailmerge (I think it is about the 3rd step) where you can select browse to use an existing list (MS calls it a database on this step, even though a spreadsheet isn't really a database).
Have you done all that?
Also, you might want to consider splitting the street and city into two separate columns, just to make it a bit more flexible in arranging your data.

On the Microsoft forums, a semi-fix was posted for the same problem. Go through the Mail Label Wizard and when you get to "Step Four", press "F6" and tab to the "Update Labels" and hit enter (don't use the mouse to "enter". For some reason, that propagates all the labels.

However, for 85 records, it created 85 pages of labels.

Page 1 = Record 1-30;
Page 2 = Record 2-31, etc.

So I printed pages 1, 31, 60 and got my 85 labels.

I was wondering if it is possible to do a merge where instead of outputting to a document where each record is on a seperate page, but rather, each record is it's own document.

For example, if I have 12 records in my database, I would like 12 documents after the merge. So instead of having one document with 12 pages, I'll end up with 12 documents with 1 page each.

The other alternative is to be able to save each page of a multipage document in a separate file for each page.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!

We are now on Office Pro 2007. We use Mail Merge in Word extensively, using our Access database as the source. We have 2 computers in the office.

When we open the mail merge document, it links to Access properly (we generally open the Access db first because it is quicker). We then merge to an individual record and save the merged document as *.docx.

When we re-open the document, it should be a normal Word document. Now what is happening is that when the merged document is created on MY computer, it opens the link to Access. When the merged document is created on THE OTHER computer, it opens as it should, without the link to Access.

Any ideas on what is going on???

It's just a completed mail-merged document.

Any ideas on this one? The only way it works is if the two computers are networked together, then it opens fine on the second computer, which suggests that it's looking for something on the orginal computer which it needs before opening the document on the second computer.

I just installed Office Prof 2007. Word is working fine except when I try to start mail merge.
As soon as I use any of the menu choices, the program pauses and then shows that the program is not responding.

I have a mail merge document with a date code. I merge to a new document and the new document contains the date codes. How can I set this up so the new document contains only the date, not the code, for the date that the merge is run?

I have never completed a mail merge and cannot seem to eliminate the "mail merge helper" in the "tools" drop down. I now have 21 and growing. I have one that is used to establish a mail merge with the pointer on it but the rest are just hanging there with no pointer on them.
How do I ever get rid of them and get back to having only the one active mail merge, that came with word 2000, remaining?
I have searched the computer as best as I can and cannot find the source of any started mail merges and have read all of the help functions in an attempt to stop this mutipication of "mail merge helpers".
Thank you in advance

Hi again guys Not being a database specialist can anyone help with an Access Word problem I have a database application which performs a query and outputs the result to Word for mail merging problem merge Word/Access mail The query works perfectly and gets the results I would expect Word opens correctly Word/Access mail merge problem on request from Access The Word merge document is a simple test case so should have no faults in it The data is passed across as a txt file and can be seen saved where it should be and correctly formatted by simple inspection in Notepad However Word cannot recognise this txt file as its database for the merge procedure and point blank refuses to let me merge The txt file has its first line as the data fieldnames and then has tab delimited fields and quot End of Line quot delimited records after It seems to me as if the problem is within Word rather than Access but I am no expert Is there some simple Word option I have set incorrectly or is it something within Access after all Any suggestions appreciated nbsp

A:Word/Access mail merge problem

What version of office are you using first of all?

Also, there are two ways to merge access/Word. One way is from Word and one way is from access. I'm assuming from your description that you are merging from Access.

This is where you kind of lost me. I've done thousands both ways, but I've never seen anything about the data saved as text fields.

You might try starting over. If you are merging from Access:
Open the query you want to use.
On the toolbar choose Tools, office links, then merge with word.
A dialogue box will pop up and ask you if it new or existing document. Choose the correct one.
When the document opens, it will prompt you for more responses. However, at this point the mail merge options and appearances are different on different versions of office.
Good luck!!!

I am working for assistance with using the IF statement in a mail merge in Word.

What I am trying to get my mail merge to do is the following:

Excel Spreadsheet
Ex. 1 Name _1 = Tony Name_2 = Christopher Name_3 = Alex Name_4 = "" Name_5 = "" Name_6 = ""
Ex. 2 Name_1 = Samantha Name_2 = Selena Name_3 = "" Name_4 = "" Name_5 = "" Name_6 = ""

Mail Merge Text

This agreement is made this «Day» day of «Month», «Year» , between (new code here)

Would like for it to read: between Tony, Christopher and Alex ~ for example 1
Would like for it to read: between Samantha and Selena ~ for example 2

Any ideas, would be greatly appreciated

We have just moved from Word 2003 to Word 2007 and I am having a slight problem with mail merge. Whereas with 2003 when selecting the source data (Excel 2003) I was able to bring it in as DDE, now the only option I have when bring in the data (Excel 2007) is to select OLE Database file. Whilst this does work, the merged fields especially currency amounts, do not retain their formatting, but when I used to bring them in as DDE they did. I know I can go in and amend the field codes to put it back, but I would rather not have to.

Is there some setting somewhere I need to change to get the DDE option back?

Thanks for your help
