Mail Merge Question
Question about using mail merge for annual contribution statement:
We've used your contribution spreadsheets this past year, and they have really been a tremendous help. I'm wondering if you have any documents that explain how you use them for a mail merge. I have no problem researching how to do a generic mail merge, but I wonder if you can give some guidance on how I would do it with these sheets & what info I can include in the letters to the contributors.
In any case, I appreciate the wonderful work you do to help others who, like me, have very limited or no experience with accounting, but want to be able to help out at our churches.Answer
You can download an example of an Annual Contribution Statement on my freebies page

As far as doing a mail merge, I am embarrassed to say...I have no idea how to do a mail merge...our church secretary always handled that wonderful chore :-)
However, I will contact her and ask her to comment on your post and explain how she always did it before she built her own contribution tracking database
