OpenOffice Writer 3.x Guide

What is mail merge? (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
  • Envelopes

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:

  1. How to create and register a data source.
  2. How to create and print form letters, mailing labels, and envelopes.
  3. Optionally, how to save the output in an editable file instead of printing it directly.
