Mail Merge: Office 2007 Word and Excel data source

My main document is in Word; my data source is Excel.

When merged, my dollar amounts do not have the dollar sign and comma (i.e.: $4,000) that are in the Excel data source. The merged field just shows up as 4000.

I never had this problem before we converted to Office 2007.

Please help as soon as possible! Thank you!!

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO PRINT MORE THAN 1 ENVELOPE AT A TIME. DO LETTERS AND ENVELOPES ONCE A WEEK BUT THE PRINTER WOULD ONLY PROCESS 1 ENVELOPE AT A TIME AND I HAD TO DO THAT ONE MANUALLY.


Hi there !

For printing bulky letters or documents of the same format, I suggest you use the MS word mail merge document. You need to set up the mail merge document and the data of the file. For examples, the list of names, addresses telephone numbers and others should be input to the envelops.

Here's how to create mail merge document file.


1. Open a new blank MS word document or if you have a format already in a MS word format, just use it as default letter.

2. Go to menu bars (Home, Insert, Page Layout, References, Mailing, Review and View) and choose Mailing.

3. From Mailing, click on select recipients, choose use existing lists and find the excel document files that stores all the information like list of customers, company names, addresses, telephone numbers and others.

4. Open it and select table will appear and just click ok to merge it automatically to your default envelope.

5. Now you need to set up or format your envelope. from the Mailing menu, Insert Mail Merge Field will appear and click it to display the headings of your data source. Put the headings wherever you want.

6. After that, press preview result to display the datas. Save your work and it is finished

How do you print envelopes?


More information is required so I will only assume you are using Excel as a database. Excel is a spread sheet program used by accountants or for mathematical formulas and ledgers. Access is the Database program, however, Excel has functions which is faster to sort and work with address, phone number, zip codes. I will confess, I use Excel as Database because it is quick and easy. I do not know what version of Excel you are using so I will describe it from Office 2007. From Excel make sure you have headers above each column i.e. First Name in Cell A1 Last Name in Cell B1 Address in Cell C1 ect.

Make sure your data is correct and case sensitive as you would like it. If you want zip+4 select the Colum and right click to format the cells using special and select Zip or Zip+4.
It is easiest to use Microsoft Word for the next step rather than format the cells, add page breaks, and customize the print size.
Save your document as an Excel document where you can find it to import it into Word.
Open word and select Mailings then Start Mail Merge and Step by Step Mail Merge.
Select Envelope and next. Select envelope options to change envelope size, font and print options.
Click on Next Select recipients.
Click on browse under select an existing list.
Select the Excel file with your address information.
From the Select Table check the First row of data contains column headers.
Click on the OK buton.
Arrange your envelope then Preview it and your good to go.
If you have an older version of word selects Tools and click on Mail Merge.
Select Get Data.
Pull down Excel for document type.
Select entire Spread Sheet.
Layout your document and complete the merge.
On old versions of word it may not recognize the Excel file. If this happens open the Excel file and save it as a Database File (.dbf) and it should work.
I hope this helps since I did not have enough information from your question.

Unable to complete merge process.


Make sure you have closed the "data source" your excel file before trying to merge. This has been throwing different errors but not allowing the merge process to continue.

Is your Excel data in various worksheets or in the same worksheet - And does your Excel source data contain headers in the first row. Once you have selected this from the range you will

At what stage are you failing in the merge now?
