Create an Outlook Template with Mail Merge

Q: Create an Outlook Template with Mail Merge

Hi,

I am wanting to create an Outlook Template (OFT) but I want to pull some of the data from a excel spreadsheet at random so that the data can be updated easily and is readily assessable. Basically it would be like a mail merge field in word.

Can someone please tell me how to create this type of template.

Thank you

Hello, I am trying to mail merge some labels. The problem is I have a custom label template that Word wont let me use. I have added in some additional cells, coloring, and formatting myself, but cannot use when I select Label option. If I select the letter option, it lets me use it, but I can't get it to repeat with <<Next Record>>. I'm sure there is an easy solution for this, but just cant figure it out.

Thanks in advance

I use mail merge only once a year, for holiday envelopes. So I'm unfamiliar with most of the options. My recipients are stored in Excel. I have saved a (single envelope) .docx with my return address and «FirstName» «LastName» «Address», etc. for recipient. But I don't know how to use it. Every year I have to start from scratch. Thankfully, I've made a checklist so that I don't have to learn everything anew each December.

It just makes sense to use the saved layout instead of redoing the whole process each time.

Where & how in the "Start Mail Merge/Envelopes/Select Recipients . . ." sequence do I tell it to use the saved layout (template)? Is a .docx the correct file type?

I have been successfully using an excel database to create mail merge labels in word. I have now made that spreadsheet read only (as others will be accessing it) and now every time I try to export the information into word my labels only show #N/A in the fields where the name and address details should be.

Is there a way to get around this and make it work or will I have to remove the read only security?
 

A:Is it possible to create a mail merge in word when the excel data is read only

I think it does cause problems with the sheet in general, there are two things you can try.

1. create the mailmerge document when the spreadsheet is not read only and save the successful mail merge template. Then rather than exporting from excel open the word doc again and hopefully it has remembered the link and it will be able to pull to date.

2. Alternatively could you have a duplicate sheet hidden in the background of your excel file that literally copies every thing that has a value. and mail merge from that?

Does that make sense

I posted into a similar thread earlier and one of the distinguished members recommended that I start a new thread... so here goes...

I am looking for a Solution that uses:

MS Office 2000 Products
Desktop/Laptop PC
List of Recipients and Personalized data stored in "*.csv files"
No Macros (I'm not to skilled in that area - but I might have to learn )

Goal:
Create 200 Personalized Emails to List Members that also insert some personal information unique to that list member.

Reason to automate:
Approximately 200 of these need to be sent every few days for a few weeks and since I'm doing it for free I want to do it efficiently without buying any more software, if possible. I'm not a spammer, so I want to avoid being blocked by the ISP's by mistake. Also, the persnalized portion is key to the contents.

Problem:
Microsoft Office Help for Word 2000, Excel 2000, Access 2000, Outlook 2000 have no specific solution identified. Later version of Office allow users to carry out this function through the mail merge menu item, so I am curious as to whether or not the functionality exists in Office 2000 (some where in the nether region of the application).

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

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.

I'm trying to find an efficient way to send out batches of form e-mails at work. I'm doing it manually now, which is very time-consuming and tedious and prone to mistakes.

I basically want to do a mail merge, but instead of using Word to output form letters or envelopes to a printer, I want the output to be e-mails sent from Outlook. Each mail will need to go to a different e-mail address, and I need to be able to insert customized bits of information like name and department, which I already have stored in spreadsheets, into the body of the message.

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? (Send To: isn't a location you can place custom data?) I've also found numerous software packages just by Googling for "Outlook mail merge", but I don't know which ones are good.

Any advice appreciated!

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.

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

I hope someone out there has the answer as I have spent many hours trying to work this porblem through.

My outlook 2002 contacts when I transfer to mail merge there is an inconsistency with the details I have entered in the data. Like one will have the Mr and then it will miss a few then maybe decide to add it again there is no pattern happening. So when I attempt to enter say a 300 odd contacts mail merge I have to individually go through and alter and check each one. My outlook contacts data is filled out corectly with the Mr & Mrs (or whatever is applicable). At time it will say Dear Anna (not Dear Ms Cox) then on the next one it could say Dear Mr Williams - whereas all the data is filled out exactly the same. I hope this makes some sense it's driving me mad!!!!

Is there any way to set my IMAP account as the default for mail merging?

Issue 2 - Once I have completed the email merge I then need to create them as a PDF, which in 2007 worked fine but the Acrobat addin in Word 10 doesn't do anything. (I do have Acrobat 8 prof installed as well) I have done a little research and can see that this is a problem but I need a solution to fix.
Otherwise I'll be reduced to uninstalling and re-install 2007!

This fixes the problem of having word show an empty address book from Outlook Contact folder when doing a mail/merge in Word.

1. I went to Outlook, clicked on Tools, then Email Accounts, then View or Change Existing Directories or Address Books

2. I then highlighted Outlook Address Book and clicked on Change

3. I then removed each address book listed, clicked on close, clicked on finish.

4. I then went to each Contacts Folder and right mouse clicked and selected the Properties option.

5. I then clicked on the Outlook Address Book tab

6. I put a check mark in the "Show this folder as an email address book"

Prior to all this each contact folder already had this checked. So God only knows why this issue existed but it did.

After doing these 6 steps I went to do a mail merge in word and selected the Contact Folder that had been showing up empty before. It no longer was empty.

Using mail merge via  Microsoft Word does not give these 3 options from what I can find.  This would save me so much time if I can send personalized mass emails to my clients.  Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Office 2003. I went through the steps of doing a mail merge from word. I selected the Outlook contact folder I wanted to use and it shows no contacts in it. However, there are plenty of contacts in that folder. So I tried another contact folder and it worked just fine. Any suggestion on this one folder?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Word mail merge shows empty outlook contact folder

Right-click that Contacts folder and hit Properties. Go to the Outlook Address Book tab and make sure it's checked to be seen as email address book.

I have Norton Anti-spam, which has turned out to be a real pain...It takes mail that I want.
I have to go there to check what it took. When I delete from the Norton anti-spam folder, it goes into my regular deleted folder, and so I have to delete these messages twice!

So I went in and turned the anti-spam OFF. It seems that it was after this that It could not create mail. So I went in and turned it back on, but the situation remained the same.

"I get various error messages"

Any chance you could supply the exact messages?

Does anybody know how to set up an outlook.com account with 2 email addresses (e.g. [email protected] and [email protected]). I already have a Microsoft account. I assume I log onto outlook.com using my Microsoft credentials.

Once done, I then want to add them to Outlook 2010.

A:Create Outlook.com with two different e-mail addresses

If I understand correctly, then I think the alias feature is what you are after. Inside Options (top right hand cog > options) you should find various links to setting up and managing aliases. I think you can setup ten alias addresses to any given account, as long as no one else is using it of course. Note that this count does not decrease even after deleting an alias, but I believe the count does go up slowly every year or so.

Example
You use [email protected] for all your personal correspondence but you do not want your workplace to have that, so instead you create an alias, such as [email protected], and give them that address. All e-mail sent to any one of those addresses will end up in the same account. Each address can be used during the login process and you can send e-mails from either address.

In the past, you could link multiple accounts, but I think this feature has been removed in favour of aliases.
