    Mail Merge Attachment (2003)

    Is it possible to send a mail merge with an attachment from Outlook 2003? If so, how?
    Thanks for the help!

    No version of Office supports mail merge with attachments. You need to use a third-party tool, such as those listed at Slipstick. I have not tried any of the addins, but found someone suggesting WorldMerge. Good luck... trish

    Trish, are you sure that you can't create a message draft with an attachment, save it as a <name>.msg file to a drive folder and then browse to it in the merge dialog? I have been meaning to test this approach but have not found time.

    I attempted this yesterday and Outlook does not give you the ability to attach, just include a Subject line... see picture below...
    So, I looked deeper and this was the solution I found...

    Maybe you meant to illustrate the Attachment format option? However, I don't see where this gives the user an option to edit the message text! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> <img src=/S/boxedin.gif border=0 alt=boxedin width=25 height=20>
