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

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.

Computer: Dell Inspiron 6000 with 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor and 2 GB of RAM.

Windows version: XP/Pro SP 3 (V. 5.1 Build 2600.xpsp.080413-21111 : SP 3)

Word 2002

I exported my contacts list from Gmail, using "Outlook's CSV format (for importing into Outlook or other applications)." The file name is contacts.csv, and has 156 names in it--only a few have physical addresses.

This is the sequence I use for the mail merge:

Open Word

Start with New Blank Document

Tools/Letters and Mailings/Mail Merge Wizard

The Task Pane opens and the Mail Merge toolbar is displayed. From the Task Pane:

Step 1: Document type = Labels

Step 2: Change document layout/Label options/8462 Address

Step 3: Use an existing list/Browse to contacts.csv. Double click on contacts.csv. Default = Select all. Click OK.

Step 4: Using Insert Merge Fields tool on Mail Merge toolbar, insert Name and Business Address/Update all labels.

Step 5: Instead of 156 labels, I get 156 pages, with many duplicate labels for each name. If your question is, why am I trying to create address labels for contacts without physical addresses, I can only say that I was trying to learn how to do a mail merge with the exported Gmail contacts list. But, if I wanted labels with only names (say name tags or file folder labels), the steps I used will also create many excess labels (I tried using just the Name field in step 4--same result).

If, at step 3, I click on the Business Address field and select nonblanks. ... Read more

A:Word Mail Merge with exported Gmail contact list

Here is an update. I created a new recipients list while using the Word Mail Merge feature, with 3 entries. If use that list for letters, I get 3 letters. If I use that list for labels, I get 3 pages of labels, with duplicates.

I created a new recipients list using Excel with 25 entries (this list is completely independent of the list of Gmail contacts) and saved it as a csv file. If I use that list for labels, whether using the Word label feature or the Word Mail Merge feature, I get 25 pages of labels, with many duplicates.

My conclusion is that there is a problem with the Word (at least Word 2002) label and/or mail merge to labels features, and that the problem is not operator error.

Can anybody help?

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.

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.

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?

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 have recently upgraded to Office 2010 (from 07) and I perform a lot a mail merges. I have come across a few issues with this feature within 2010 and wondered if anyone has a solution. I am obviously running Windows 7.

Issue 1 - When performing the mail merge to emails (HTML), Word 2010 doesn't seem to recognise my IMAP email account, which is set as default in Outlook 10 it uses one of my other pop email accounts.
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!

I recently installed and set up Outlook 2007, which included importing e-mail messages from Windows Mail.

When I start up Outlook, it creates a folder titled Mail on my desktop with nothing in it. This doesn't appear to have any use, and it is annoying to have this appear again the next time I start Outlook even after deleting it previously.

I am not sure if it is related to my importing mail from Windows Mail, because I believe I designated a folder on my desktop (possibly titled "Mail") for my Windows Mail messages in order to import correctly. But then I deleted it (and most of Windows Mail). However, this may be unrelated.

I have disabled all Outlook add-ins, as well as mail scanning for my Norton AntiVirus, but neither of these worked.

Any suggestions?

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.

I would like to create a mailmerge document with "consecutive" data (ie: first name, last name, gift amount) that I want to keep in the SAME page from one record to the next until I get to the real bottom of the page. I cannot find a way to make the merged document NOT put a page break between each record (word 2007). Where can I find such a command?

Also when I tab between each field, the fields line up for the FIRST record, but then they are out of wack for subsequent records. How can I assure that the data in the records will line up throughout the whole merged document? ie:
first name1 last name1 amount1
first name2 last name2 amount2
first name3 last name3 amount3
etc, etc., etc.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
 

A:Solved: word mail merge page break

I've used the merge feature quite often in the past, using the Mail Merge wizard, which is still included in Word 2007. But I've never had occasion to do the type of merge you are wanting. But I have heard (in which forum I don't remember) that there is such a thing as a "directory" merge in Word, which prints a continuous listing of the data fields, laid out as you specified them in your post.

For my own curiosity, I just tried using Word 2007's Help feature to find information on a directory merge; sadly, it seems to be lacking, or missing entirely, from what I can see. But I just tried this, and it seems to work: Start the merge wizard, and when it asks you what type of document you are working on, choose Directory. This will allow you to choose to specify which fields, one by one, you want on each line of your printed listing. To take care of the column alignment problem, I would suggest that you create a one-row table (with or without borders, and with or without any before/after spacing you want) to hold the fields you want on each record of your listing. When I chose to complete the merge, using one of my own data files, Word produced a continous listing, one line for each record in my data file, filling each page until all data records were printed. Of course, you can specify which records you want included, if you don't want all of them, during the merge process.

Hope this will help.

Hi all,
I'm attempting to create a mail merge in 2010 with multiple records merging into a table on one page. I've tried a couple of options:
Use the "Next Record" rule. This works in the first row, but the merge reads left to right so when it gets to the next row, it's screwed up. I can't find a way to tell it to read down the column and then move to the next record instead of reading across the row.
Merge to a directory. I can create a table with one column, but when I merge to the directory, it stacks the columns on top of each other. There will only be three records for each page, so even if I use a three column layout, there's enough room to stack the columns instead of showing them side by side. Also, since there's so much other data on the page, there's no good way to fit the merge to a directory information within it.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm attaching a sample document and the cells in yellow are the ones I need to merge. Thanks.

Our office has recently upgraded to MS Office XP. We can't install SP3 for Office XP - it breaks our other apps.
We have about 200 or so form letters we use to send to clients using many "If" statements to send them the information they need. We will also use "includetext" strings to another Word document to bring in that information.
Sometimes, in that "external" document, there is an "if" statement that references to one of the mergefields (ie FirstName, LastName), on which we also put formatting switches ( \* Caps).
What we are finding is that in the main document, when the includetext brings over the name, it's in all UPPER case, just the way it is brought over from our database.
The flow of what it is doing may look like this:
main document w/includetext > external document > "if" statement with mergefield \*Caps.
Word is not completing all the commands we have given it by not putting the name in First Initial in Caps with the rest lower case.
Have any of you heard of this? If so, does anybody know a solution?
Thanks.

In the recipient address, if there is no address2, it leaves a blank line. Using the address block fix is problematic because it does not seem to want to allow me to choose the specific fields, it names them for me. Also, there are nine versions of the letter I arranged into excel fields to get around having to create multiple versions.

I have consolidated several Outlook Contact lists recently; two Outlook 2000 and one Outlook 2003 into a single Outlook 2003 install. I did this by exporting each 2000 folder as a .pst file and then importing them into the 2003 Contact folder. Afterwards, I found I was missing about 100 contacts out of 1500. These were random contacts, and not from one particular .pst file. When I happened to scroll down to the bottom of the current 2003 Contact folder, I found a second "contact" listing with the missing entries. It is not a second contacts folder, it is a second "contacts" listing in the main "Contacts" folder. In other words, I have two "contacts" listings in the main "Contacts" folder; same spelling, etc. I tried to copy/move the 100 entries to the main 1500 entries but no luck. I then moved the 100 entries to a subfolder, checked the main "Contacts" folder to make sure I only had one "contacts" listing left, and then I moved them back. This created the second "contacts" listing again. I then copied both sets of "contacts" to a second subfolder, and they merged fine. I then deleted all the entries in the main "Contacts" folder and copied the entries in the subfolder back to "Contacts". When I opened it, I had two sets of "contacts" listings again.

Hey y'all,

Been searching for this answer the past day & am stumped.

The long subject tells the tale but here is more detail.

I have a Word 2K doc that I want to fax to my clients automatically. Their fax numbers are in my Access 2K database. I used mailmerge and found my data source, click merge, get the merge dbox and select electronic mail. Help I found said this is what is used for faxes as there is no fax option. I click setup & select my data field w/fax numbers. When I click merge I get a check names box from Outlook 2K saying no matches found for my # in the db. I've tried the testing from MSKB, everything checks out. I have removed check names in Outlook. I'm at the end of my rope. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

TIA
Steve

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.

Clayton

I would like to use Word 2007 Mail Merge to compose and send email messages. My email client is Windows Live Mail. I do not have Outlook. I do not need to access my WLM Contacts list. The email addresses I want to send messages to are in a column of the Word table that I am using as the Mail Merge data source. I have gone through all of the steps of a Mail Merge, including writing the email message, inserting data fields into it, and selecting recipients. The last step is to finish, merge, and send messages. I click on that step and nothing happens - no error message appears but no messages are sent. Any advice? It's possible this can't be done, but I am hoping it can.

lol, i got no idea what's wrong with it. located in my documents/downloads I open the folder and it comes up empty. If I rename it to some other name, its contents show up actually, strange thing. Also, if I open the folder the long way, that is c\users\myuser\my documents\downloads it opens fine, even i don't change the folder name, any ideas? I think the error is in the registry, used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall facemoods and it messed up the registry to a state that pc became useless, had to backup registry, but seems it never recovered from it lol.

A:Folder has Sub-Folders and Files but shows up empty.

Would be easy if you had a backup from before the problem. DO you have the OS dvd to do a repair install?

I believe my .pst file has become too large. The total size is 744936KB. I am using Vista Office on the 32bit version of Vista.

When I try to delete an item from or empty my entire deleted items folder I receive the following Message "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart outlook."

When I try to move any item from any folder to another folder I receive and error that says "Cannot Move the Items. The Folder is full."

When I try to archive items it will not archive and my archive log says that there was an error while archiving each folder.

When I send a message, rather than putting a copy of the message in my sent items folder it says my sent items folder is full and it will keep the message in my outbox but not resend it.

How can I clean this up?
 

A:Solved: Unable to Empty Deleted Items Folder in Outlook Vista

Have you tried holding the shift key while pressing the delete button? You can also try deleting and recreating your Outlook profile. If this does not work can you try to export your existing inbox contents to a seperate .PST file? How large is the existing .PST file?

Regards,
Rollin
