    Mail Merge (Outlook 2002 / Word 2002)

    I'm now using XP. Before in Outlook 2000 I created a sub-folder for my Contacts. I created one call Mail Merge and copied some contacts into that folder. Then when I ran a Mail Merge in Word 2000 I would request the mail Merge folder so I only sent messages to thoughts users. I don't seem to have that in 2002. It seems I have to select edit recipient list, then go to drop down arrow next to column header and select advanced, etc. Is that truly the right way now??

    No, you shouldn't have to edit the recepient list, you should just get the notification to Sort your mail merge receipents. I know since we have converted to Office XP a lot of people think that the merge is more difficult but it's not.

    Step 1, use existing Contacts list
    Step 2, select the Contacts folder
    Step 3. select your folder that your group is in
    Step 4. select All of recipients and OK
    Step 5 . Compose your email message
    Step 6. Select merge

    Be sure to read all on the task pane

    Hope this helps

    I created some instructions to send out to a group who will be converting to Win XP and Office XP, they are attached.
