You've met the Mail Merge toolbar and seen how you can use its buttons to walk through a more advanced merge process. Now's your chance to try an advanced merge yourself by creating a form letter with a coupon in it. To complete this practice session, you'll need to use the data file that you created in the first practice session.
About the practice session
When you click Practice in Word, a practice document will download to your computer and open in Word, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).
Note You need to have Word 2003 installed on your computer.
