merge data into document in open office

Published by:

linuxnewbieguide.comOpen Office has a mail merge function in it. But until today I don’t know how to use it. Mail merge is very handy if we need to print a bunch of letters to many people at once.
Or I might use it for merging some data into the letter document.
After googling and found one tutorial here, this is how to create mail merge.
1. Click file – wizard – address data source
2. Choose other external data source
3. Connection setting – spreadsheet – next – browse

Then in the document press f4 for menu data source – drag and drop the header row into the document as a field.

That’s it. So it is quite different with I used to with the other program.
Open Office mail merge has also a function to print into document or directly into printer.
