To get the "merge" symbols, select Insert>Field from the menu.
In the Categories list box, select Mail Merge. In the Field
names list box, select MergeField. You will have to enter the
name of the field yourself.

| List Members,
| I know we are having a "hot" discussion about the resting place
and fees of
| the TECHWR LIST but I have a quick question. I know there is a
| answer to this simple questions but here goes:
| I need to create a Word document (a letter) and have it sent
out to several
| companies (approx. 50) or more with only the company
information changing
| but the letter remaining as a template. How do you get the
"merge" symbols
| such as
| <<Company Name>>
| <<Address>>
| <<City>>, etc.
| and how do you merge the company information from another Word
document or
| an Excel document?
| Again, I'm sorry if this is an elementary question, I've seen
it done but
| don't recall how it was created.
| Thanks in advance for you help,
| Thanks,
