    Can you do a mail merge using Word&Exchange GAL

    Would like to be able to use the global address list to manage all my mailing lists. Thus we need to be able to include fields from the global address list into Word's mail merge function. The goal is not to require the administrator to export a list of users everytime a list needs to be created.

    A solution that would let Outlook/Access/or Excel be an interface for an end user would work if it can't be done directly from Word.

    Any and All help greatly appreciated we are stepping onto new ground for this one.

    Thanks

    Re: Can you do a mail merge using Word&Exchange GAL

    Depending on the version of Outlook/Word your office uses, this can be easily done. A delegate to the specific Contacts Folder(s) can perform it without the admin having to export. In OL, click on Tools, new (letter, etc.) to contact.

    After you check this out, if you think it may work for your office then further questions can be posted in the Outlook forum.

    With a GAL? You can use contacts for merges but not the GAL. There is a merge utility but AFAIK, it only does the names, not all the other info. (Half my fields are empty anyway)
    how to print contacts can be found here....

    the utility i'm thinking of is the very last one.
