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.
