Mail Merge Help Part Deux

Ok... I need more help.

I'm creating another email blast to select contact lists for the launch of a new product.

I've got the contact info and greeting info sorted out. Now how to I add a pdf to the email?

Thanks,

Martin

You can attach pictures on MH but you can't add to an email?!

maybe if it was in french right?





What email service are you using? or are you using outlook?


If outlook, theres a button that looks like a paper clip.

I know outlooks email writer is basically the code from Word.

Acrobat has the ability to save it as a word document, or at least the Pro version does.
Mail Merges are not created in Outlook but in Word from what Curt has informed me.

Use contacts as a data source for a mail merge
Open the contacts folder. This can be your existing Contacts folder, or a folder you create and to which you copy only the contacts you want to be part of the mail merge.
Filter the current view of the contacts folder. For example, you can create a filter so that only contacts from a specified state or province are included in your mail merge.
How?

On the View menu, point to Current View, and then click Customize Current View.
Click Filter, and then select the options you want. To filter by state/ province or another address field, in the Filter dialog box, click the Advanced tab, click Field, and then point to Address fields.
On the Tools menu, click Mail Merge.
Under Contacts, click an option.
Under Fields to merge, click an option.
Under Document file, click an option.
To add merge fields to a document you’ve already created, click Existing document, and then click Browse to select the document.

To create a new document for the mail merge, click New document.

If you want to save the current set of contacts in a merge file, select the Permanent file check box, and then click Browse to select the document.
In the Document type list, select the type of mail merge you want.
In the Merge to list, select where you want the merged records exported to. Distribution lists are not exported.
Click OK. Microsoft Word opens.
In Word, on the Tools menu, point to Letters and Mailings, and then click Mail Merge Wizard or use the Mail Merge toolbar.
Use Word Help for additional information.

If your doing what I think your trying to do why not just upload the PDF somewhere and just put a link to it in the email.
