1. What button during the merge process will show all the field codes within your form letter?
You don’t need to highlight the fields, they all have the chevron marks on them.
Mailings Ribbon, Highlight Merge Fields button.
Select the fields and use the yellow highlight button on the Home ribbon.
2. Why does the video say the Insert Merge Field button is magic?
It doesn’t have a wizard wand on it, so there is no magic.
It shows every field linked to your database and you can pick and choose which field to place anywhere within your text.
It shows the fields linked to your database so you don’t spell them wrong when you type them into your text.
3. At “Finish and Merge”, why would you want to choose EDIT instead of PRINT?
Edit allows you to preview all the letters for any final text adjustments and formatting changes. One last chance to fix things before printing hardcopies.
Just print and be done with it.
Edit creates a new document that takes up room in my files.
