Mail Merge

Guest

I'm new with Office 2007 that I recently installed. I'm trying to do an
E-mail merge with a document that I created in Word 2007. In my Outlook
2007, I have three sets of CONTACT folders, one under each of their
respective PERSONAL FOLDER. When I'm in WORD, and try to pick the source
list, it only displays the one original CONTACTS folder, not displaying the
names of the other two CONTACTS folders. How can I get all my CONTACTS
folders to appear in this list. Also, I can begin the merge in that specific
CONTACTS folder in OUTLOOK; the problem is that WORD does not allow me to put
in the FIRST NAME (or any other ) field to insert information to merge before
merge it in OUTLOOK. Is there a work-sround for this? Thank you.

I found the answer; In Outlook, right click on the CONTACTS folder that you
want to appear in the WORD Mail Merge source list, and click on PROPERITES;
under the Outlook Address Book tab, make sure that the Show this folder as an
e-mail Address Book check box is selected, and then click OK.

Thank you anyway. Ben J.

You must enable the folders as email address books in their properties.
Your second question is unclear. You can construct a merge the same way when
you start from Outlook. All Contact fields are available.
