What is mail merge?
OpenOffice.org (OOo) Writer provides very useful features to create and print:
- Multiple copies of a document to send to a list of different recipients (form letters)
- Mailing labels
All these facilities, though different in application, are based around the concept of a registered “data source”, from which is derived the variable address information necessary to their function.
This chapter describes the entire process. The steps include:
- How to create and register a data source.
- How to create and print form letters, mailing labels, and envelopes.
- Optionally, how to save the output in an editable file instead of printing it directly.
