Hi :)
That point keeps coming up but it best said the other way around
80% of MSO almost never gets used.


How many people know how to mail-merge?  Not as many as know how to use

Regards from
Tom :)

What the heck is a mail merge? I use Thunderbird, i wouldn't have any idea
how to do any kind of mail in a word processor. And I don't know why I'd ever
want to.--doug

not knowing what it is, it's understandable why you'd not know why you'd want to. <g>

you want to send mail (usually printed stuff) to 1000 individuals but personalized so each letter has the individual's name, address, perhaps a personal greeting like "good morning, doug!"

you can modify each letter by hand a thousand times or use mail merge.

I would love to do it, also for emails, but for my purposes I probably need to set up a database instead.
