Q: email with mail merge and Outlook doesn't work

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.

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!

Anyone with solutions please let me know.

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.

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.

I have always had trouble getting mail-merge (MM) letters created on my desktop at home to work when copied to another computer. It just happened again. The scenario goes like this:

Write query in MS Access (2000).
Create the form letter.
Use the MM toolbar to select the data source.
Insert fields
When I run the MM letters, they work perfectly. I then take the letters to a client where the path to both the query and the letters is identical to what it is on my computer. However, the version of Office is 2003, not 2000. I get error messages that it can't find the DDE something or other, and a dialog box pops up with a button to "Find data source". I click it and it lists all the tables and queries from the correct database. Pick the query. Window opens ask me to pick the fields I want to use. Trouble is, none of the fields from the query are there. I'm not even sure where they're coming from. At one point, it asked if I wanted to remove the header information, which I did, then started all over again. Same result.

I almost seems like you have to create the MM letters on the computer on which they're going to be used, else it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?
 

A:Mail merge letters don't work

I posted a similar message on the Microsoft Office forum and got a response that gave me a partial solution. One of the things I was doing wrong is that after opening the MM letter on the computer to which I had copied the letter, a dialog box pops up saying, "Opening this document will run the following SQL command: SELECT * FROM [MshipRenewalLetter]. Data from your database will be placed in the document. Do you want to continue?" The natural answer to that should be 'Yes', because it correctly identifies the query and says data from the query will be placed in the document -- exactly what I want it to do.

WRONG! The responder said to answer 'No' to wipe out the (invisible) header information linking the letter to the query. I then have to click "Select recipients", which opens a list of queries from the database from which I'm to select one. Only problem is the query I want isn't on the list. Having read something about not being able to link a query that contains a parameter in a thread about this on another forum (my query required the user to enter the month as a number; i.e., April = 4), I altered the query, replacing the parameter call with the criterion "Month(Date())". IOW, it will automatically select people whose renewal month is the same as the system month.

That change caused the query to show up in the list of queries! However, after selecting the query and running the letter, all the fields are bl... Read more

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.

I've had this problem for several years and would like to find out why. I create a mail-merge letter in Word 2000 using an Access 2000 query as the data source. Works perfectly on my non-networked computer at home. I take it to the organization (a foundation) that wants to use it and where the Access (they have 2003) query is in a file with the same name, but the tables reside on a server (the database is a client/server design where the client part is on all the workstations). The links to the tables are all correct, so the client side of the split database has the same access to all the tables as I have on my home computer. BUT. . . the mail-merge document no longer works.

I have tried removing the header information from the document and starting all over selecting the data source again, etc. Still does not work.

What causes this and how can I fix it?

Have new laptop running Win 7 Home Premium and Office 2010. Tried to create a mail merge document using a query in an Access 2010 database as the data source. Started with blank Word document. Click on "Select Recipients" and "Use Existing List". Window opens showing the queries in the database that do not contain parameters (question about that later). Select the query I want. Click "Insert Merge Fields". Window opens and shows all the correct merge fields. Select and arrange them on the document. Test document by clicking on "Preview Results". NO NAMES, NO ADDRESSES, NOTHING SHOWS.

If I click on "Edit Recipient List", a window opens showing the correct column headings, each one being one of the fields in the query. . . but there are NO RECORDS in the window.

If I run the query in the database, 16 records are selected by the query.

Why is the MM letter ignoring the data source and giving me a blank merged document?

Second question: I would prefer to have a parameter in the query to let the user select the month number; i.e., April = 4, so to show April membership renewal candidates, user enters 4. However, NO QUERY WITH A PARAMETER SHOWS UP IN THE LIST OF DATA SOURCE QUERIES!! Why is it necessary to NOT have a parameter in the query?

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 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.

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.
 

A:Mail Merge Lost Outlook Contacts in Document

a-hawks:
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...

Recently I send out a bulk email for our CEO (ya, that's right, the big guy!?!). I had a mailing list as my datasource, created the document in Word (as my email editor), attached two files and sent it off. However, once the merge was performed and everything was sent out the attachments either weren't on the resulting mass email, or only the icons for the attachments appeared. Simply, the attachments seemed to be stripped off the resulting email.

Does anyone have an explanation for this? I've looked on the MS Knowledge base to no avail. I'd really like to be able to explain it to the CEO so I look like less of a bumbling idiot!

Cheers
 

A:Attachments disappear in Outlook/Word email merge

Hi, I don't have an answer for you but you seem to be trying to do the same thing I want to do - send an email/merge mass mailing and include an attachment to the email. When I start in word and do the mail merge/email function I can send a form letter type text email to everyone in a mailing database but I can't figure out how to have each email attach one (the same) document as an attachment. It sounds like you figured it out. Let me know how you did it and i can let you know if I have the same problem you did or not. Thanks
