Use mail merge for mass mailings and more

Merged letters containing unique information

When you perform a merge, a new document is created for each set of unique information. The unique information replaces the placeholders that you added to the main document.

In a mail merge, the unique information is the information that is different in each merged copy that you create.

For example, unique information might be:

  • Addresses on envelopes or labels.
  • Names in the greeting line of a form letter.
  • Salary amounts in e-mail messages that you send to your employees.
  • Personal notes about favorite products in postcards that you mail to your best customers.
  • Numbers on redeemable coupons.
