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.
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 Gender.In the section Address list field indicating a female recipient, set the field name to Gender 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 â€œTo whom it may concernâ€.
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.
