Mail merge in Outlook 2000

Q: Mail merge in Outlook 2000

I am trying to send out a newsletter (as a PDF attachment of about 120 kb) to a bunch of clients and need to find a way to send it efficiently. If I send them all at once, some IP providers / email hosts block it thinking that I am spamming. I can try to send them in batches, if nothing works, but I was wondering if there is an efficient solution. I checked out the mail merge function in Outlook 200 and it works perfectly, but I cannot figure out how to attach an attachment with the merged email. Any thoughts on how to attach attachments to merged emails or any other creative solution?

Really appreciate this.

We started by creating a Mailing Label template using the Mailing Label
Wizard in Word. The fields we set up were:
First Name
Last Name
Company
Street Address
City
State/Province
Postal Code
Then we went to Outlook and chose View by Category. We then highlighted all names in the category we wanted to merge. Then we tried to merge using
these commands:

Tools
Mail Merge
Only Selected Contacts
All Contact Fields
Existing Document - (We browsed to the Word template we had set up)
OK

This opened up a Word screen as asked us if we wanted to Merge now which we clicked on and selected Merge in the next screen too.
Upon selecting Merge the second time, an "Invalid Merge Field" screen opened
up with these options:

This merge field is used in the main document, but it does not exist in the
data source: State/Province
Postal Code

Options were to Remove Field (which we don't want to do) or
Replace with a valid merge field from data source.

If we selected the second option we could enter State and ZIPPostal Code but had to do this for EVERY label (30 times) and then it would work, but we
couldn't figure out how to change our template to read this way, because
when we tried to do that it reverted back to the standard fields in Word
which are not recognized in Outlook.

In other words when we did step 2 and entered the fields in the create labels template box and editing the fields in that step they converted back to standard fields.
Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.... Read more

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.

Thank you.

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!!!

Thanks!!!

Hello everyone!

I am having a major issue and I really hope someone can help me out. Iím trying to do a mail merge in Word 2000, I have windows xp professional. The last time I did this same merge was in January and it worked fine. Okay here is my issue:

I have all my data for the merge saved in an excel file. My mail merge document in word has never changed; you can see it at the end of my post. I follow the mail merge wizard direction, all the prompts and for some reason it adds the same person twice, throwing everything off. In my excel workbook I have people broken up by units. For instants, unit one only has three people, Julie, Mark and Ron. When I merge the fields it will put Julie in the first two places, then Mark, Ron and the next two people from group 2. I really hope Iím making sense. Iíve redone the merge sheet, same result, made a fake spreadsheet in excel, made a new merge sheet, same thing, keeps giving me doubles. I made a fake list with fake names. I attached the merge sheet, I tried to attach the excel page but it wouldnt stay in format.You will see how John was added twice, he is only in my spreedsheet once.

hi all,

i'm hoping someone on here has an answer to my dilema...

we recently upgraded from Office 2000 to 2003 and have run into a problem when trying to do mail merges between the Office apps. i'll do my best to explain:

1.) data in entered into an Access DB that creates job-sheets
2.) this can be printed / emailed to others (done via Excel to Word using Mail Merge)

with 2000 (on which it was developed) everything worked as it should, but since upgrading to 2003 the data is no longer getting across.

what it throws back is 'This method or property is not available because the document is not a mail merge mail document.

after discussing this problem with our database manager we think it might be because of the following:

you'll see that in 2003 the 'No' option is highlighted by default, in 2000 the 'Yes' option was highlighted!

anyone know a work around this?

currently the 'action' is dictated by VB code with a button on the Access DB entry form.

hope someone can help!

thanks in advance.

Hello all,

I have a Database containing a member list in access 2000. I send personalized emailings for evening parties (each member receives an email with his name & a few details) according to certain criterias. I need to send HTML emails for the formatting.

The simplest method seemed to use MS Word "Tools/Office/Fusion with MS Word" to send a mailing. The sending works fine, however, MS word is incapable of sending HTML messages that way, it only sends plain text. This seems to be a built in limit.

Does anyone know how to work around this MS Word limitation and send html messages (keeping the formatting) ? I'm ready to have a look at any software (preferably freeware or cheap!) you might suggest. An important point, for the sake of simplicity, would be to be able to launch it from access directly (like the Tools/Office/Fusion with MS Word thing. because I do my sorting in Access and don't want to save the results to a separate table each time.)

Thanks a million if anyone can help me !

I set up a mail merge document in Word 2000 and then merge the results to a new document, then save the new document. I can open this new document fine. But, if I move the document to a different computer it won't open and crashes Word. Don't know why it does this as it shouldn't still be linked to the source mail merge database. 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.

This has me baffled. Weird and frustrating.

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.

The Microsoft website and Word 2000 help did not offer any solutions. Thank you.
 

A:Word 2000 Printing Both sides/Mail Merge

First of all, when you say print two sided, do you mean in one pass through the printer? That depends on the printer: is it a duplex printer and do you have the appropriate driver for it? If you're not sure, you can put the make and model here and we can probably figure it out. Generally, you can just go to the web site or the owner's manual for its capabilities.

Second, a document, mailmerge or otherwise, does not care whether you print it one- or two-sided.

Other, larger programs like Photoshop have no problem running.
 

A:Low memory message when using mail merge in Office 2000

How much physical memory (RAM) do you have? I don't know because I've never done a mail merge, but I have a feeling that the process would require a considerable amount of swap space--in Windows it's called the Page or Paging File.

What is the actual error message verbatim? If it mentions virtual memory, the issue is with the size of your page file. The page file is basically unused space on your hard drive that Windows can use to dump data when making transfers of any kind. Therefore, in addition to posting your physical memory, what is the size of your hard drive or system partition, and how much free space is available?

I have Access 2000 data that is merged into Word 2000. Each Access table is merged to a specific main Word document. Each main document has several If statements. Based upon the selection of various Access fields and check boxes, specific text is output to the Word main document for each record. The amount of output text affects the number of section pages each record produces. For example, one record may require a two-page letter, while the next record may require three pages, etc. My dilemma is that I need the merged document to be able to print duplex. If I have a record that produces only one page, I do not want the next record to start printing on the back page of record one. Basically, I want to insert a blank page when needed. I experimented with different types of breaks but it does not work for every record. Is there a way to do this when the source records produce varying numbers of section break pages within the same document? Please help. I have been researching/experimenting with this for weeks.

Hi all

I have an old Access 2000 database which has a number of queries feeding mail merge letters in Word 2000. These have always worked perfectly. We are upgrading our systems to XP, and now have Access 2003 and Word 2003. We have moved everything onto new servers and set up folders exactly as they were on the old system, so for example the database and Word letters are in exactly the same places in relation to each other that they always were. But the merge letters cannot find the data source. When I open the letter and click the Find data source button on the window which appears, I can navigate to the database but the queries which are needed (and which are in the database) do not get listed in the Select Table dialog box. Basically the letters can't find their data source, despite the fact it's in the exact same spot, and when I navigate to the data source I can't see the queries I need which I know are there.

Also I should say that there is no VB code involved. Open the Word letter (in the working 2000 version) and it links automatically to the database and to the correct query which runs and then puts the data into the letter. All extremely simple. Or should be...

We're meant to be starting to use the new system ASAP and this is driving me crazy! Any and all suggestions gratefully received.
 

A:Mail merge worked in 2000, but can't find data source in 2003

Ok, so you don't see the queries listed, but do you see anything? Like the tables the queries are based upon?

It sounds like your data source might not be configured correctly.

Check the basics in the Data Link Properties. On the provider tab, make sure you have the right provider selected (probably should be Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE). On the Connection tab, browse and select your database. On that same tab, make sure you have the correct username and password (if any). Use the "Test Connection" button to see if it all works. You can often ignore the "Advanced" and "All" tabs.

Does anyone know of a good way to do this? I've read about a way to do it using Word & Outlook, but I heard that has some kind of huge limitation?

How do you mail merge using Outlook and use an attachment?

Maybe the Office 2002 gurus out there can direct me to a solution to this pesky problem...
When I try a mail merge to make mailing labels with Word 2002, I always use my Outlook contacts for the data.

However, Word always gives me an error message that says that Outlook is not configured as the defualt mail client. It instructs me to make the changes in Outlook and to try again.

I've been in Outlooks Tools menu, as the help files tell me, and have checked the settings, and made sure the box is checked to configure Outlook as the defualt email program, but Word behaves the same.

Any suggestion?

Thanks,

I have windows 7 & office 2007. I am attempting to create an email merge. I have tried to do so starting with first with outlook (which takes me to word) which failed in sending, and then starting with word (which takes me to outlook and then back to word) and also failed in sending. I have followed all instructions to a T (as provided by help in both programs as well as microsoft help online).

What am I missing? Is there some connection between the 2 programs that needs to be set up first?

I have often used Word 7 Mail Merge and merged emails to Outlook 7 Since I have installed Windows 7 I am now unable to get the emails to show up in Outlook. They appear to merge in Word but they do not show up in Outlook or any other email programme I have. Can anyone help me? I have noticed many others on the web having the same problem.

We have several Word documents (PO's, Quotes, etc.) that currently are used with ACT! to do mail merge (only to import contact info to a single document). We are moving to Prophet (which works with Outlook) and want to continue using these documents. Office help says you have to have matching versions of Outlook/Word (we don't).
Is there a way to make Outlook 2003 merge contacts as needed into these Word documents without upgrading everyone to Word 2003?
Thanks.

So maybe it's late and I'm cranky, but I didn't see this thread already.

Microsoft Office 2000 - Win Me (unfortunately)

I'm trying to mail merge my Outlook Contacts/Address book into a printed document to carry between computers. It works great using "use address book" and looks fabulous if I do say so myself. The problem is that it skips many of my contacts. It doesn't matter if I sort or filter the records. It skips the same people and I don't see any similarities among the skipped records.

I'm open to suggestions because this is just weird.

I've considered your post, and can only think to test the doc on my PC. If that's an option for you, email to [email protected]. I'll see if it does the same here and, if so, why...

I have attempted to print out mailing labels from my Contacts Folder in Outlook 2003 without success.

I list here the steps taken so far :-

1.Contact page selected in Outlook containing all the addresses I want to print. I then click Tools> Mail Merge.
2. In the MM Page I have selected;- All Contacts,All Contact Fields & Mailing Labels
3. Selecting "OK" launches MS Word with instructions to click "SETUP" in Section 1 of the MM Helper Page which now appears.
4.When this is clicked , the "LABEL OPTIONS" Page appears
5 Here I select "AVERY A4 & A5 sizes" with Product Number of L7160.
6.cLICKING "ok" brings me to the Blank Label Page with MM Helper Page still superimposed on it.
7 There are 3 choices on this page with the 3rd choice "MERGE" greyed out.

I only use the Mail Merge facility rarely , the last time was almost a year ago , but I seem to remember that the 3rd choice here . i.e. "MERGE" was not "greyed out" the last time I used this facility.

Any advice as to how to resolve this would be appreciated.
