Word 2007 has an entire tab on the Ribbon dedicated to the Mail Merge feature making it easier than ever.

Figure 10. Create Group
Even though it’s the first group on the Mailing tab, the Create group isn’t necessarily where you need to start. This group contains commands for creating envelopes and labels.
The Start Mail Merge group on the Mailing tab is where you go to begin the mail merge process. This group contains commands for converting an existing document to a Mail Merge Main Document and selecting and editing your data source.

Figure 12. Write & Insert Fields Group
The Write & Insert Fields group on the Mailing tab contains all the commands necessary for inserting Mail Merge Fields (or, placeholders) into your document.
The Preview Results group on the Mailing tab allows you to see the results of your mail merge before anything is sent to the printer or through email.

Once you’ve set up your Mail Merge Main Document, set up your Data Source and previewed the finished product, you’re ready to use the only button in the Finish Group – Finish & Merge.
