  1. As far as I can see it doesn't work with Outlook contact groups so the recipients will have to be selected individually.

    One work around is to chose all the recipients, add the merge fields then save the document. That way you would have a template for future use. You would just need to open the document, type the body of text and finish the merge.

    Another option would be to set up the list of recipients in word itself so that you can use that list in the future.



    Thanks for your input. I will work and experiment with your suggestions.

  2. I believe what you are referring to would be mail merge, which you can initiate in Outlook or Word, using Outlook contacts or a separate list. Not sure which version you're using so I recommend googling "mail merge Outlook 20XX" and using your version. Let me know if you need further clarification. I hope this helps!Lauren


    This is great! Thanks. I have Office v.2010. When starting from Word, I cannot see my contact group as the source. I researched this and found an article that addresses using different Outlook profiles that would cause groups to show, but it does not appear that I have that option available. When starting the mail merge from Outlook, the message I received is that contact groups cannot be used in mail merges. I tried to copy the members of my group to put them in an Excel spreadsheet and use that as the source when starting from Word, but could not determine how to copy, either. Your continued support is appreciated! This has to be less difficult than I am making it.
