Step 4: Create salutation
The salutation is the initial greeting, for example, Dear Mr Jones'. In step 4, select the salutation that will appear in the letter.
Create a salutation.
You can use a different greeting for men and women. To do this, Writer must have some way of knowing whether a person is male or female. In our spreadsheet we had a column called Sexr. In the section Address list field indicating a female recipient, set the field name to Sex and the field value to F. The male salutation is then printed for all men and the female salutation for all women.
||You do not need to tell OOo who is a male, because it assumes that all non-female records are males.
If you do not select Insert Personalized Salutation, you can use a more general salutation without referring to the recipient directly, such as “To whom it may concern”.
As in step 3, step 4 of the wizard has a preview pane at the bottom. You should check more than one record to ensure that other records look the way you expect.
