Question: Mail Merge help

*Please bear with me, I'm new to Mac. I've been a devout PC user but had to switch for work.*


So I have a spreadsheet in Numbers (of names, addresses, etc.) and need to perform a mail merge in Pages (where my label template is) to create an individual malling label for each person on the spreadsheet. But for the life of me I cannot figure out how to merge the Numbers doc to the Pages label template I created.


PLEASE HELP. Thank you!

Previous versions of Pages had Mail Merge but it was dropped in Pages 5 and 6, along with a long list of productivity features. Apple apparently assumes its current users are incapable of doing professional work, so there is no longer a need to supply the tools that used to make the Mac such a joyously easy and productive platform.


There is a 3rd party AppleScript to do the job but it constantly needs updating and is fiddly.


The normal method to accomplish this task on a Mac is to add your Addresses to Contacts, organised into Groups and to use the preinstalled Label Print in the Print Dialog in Contacts to print out sets of labels to whatever labels you want. The standard Avery labels are included in Print and there is quite a bit of control over the fonts, typesetting and even added images.
