I am trying to set up a mail merge for my class reunion on my new Imac 21.5. I have Word for Mac 2011. On my old system I could create a list in a spreadsheet then import it to mail merge to print my labels. I can't get the information to import to the mail merge manager. I am new to Mac so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Depends on the application you are merging to, in Word it's Tools>Mail Merge Manager.

     

    What application are you using?

    In Windows Word I created a list in Excel spreadsheet. Then I went to Microsoft Office Home & Student and went to mail merge wizard. I then could import my spreadsheet with the fields I needed. When I try the same on the Mac it said it can't import the document. I thought the problem was that I was trying to import a document from my Windows Office. I typed a new list on the Mac but it still wouldn't import. Do I have to enter my data in a different format than a spreadsheet? Love the IMac but am still learning! Thanks so much for the help.

    I actually purchased Microsoft Office Home & Student for Mac. When I look for the information on the software it says Word for Mac 2011. Hope this helps!

    Sorry! It keeps changing the name. It is Microsoft  Office  Home. &. Student for Mac.

    So go to the menu I previously described and start the Mail Merge Manager, you'll need a list (in Excel, just like before) and a document to send.
