Question
How can I create a news letter using ms word 2007 as well as mail labels and creating of data source for the merging. Thanks.

Answer
Hi Solomon,

I don't create newsletters but I have used Microsoft Word for mailing labels and envelopes.

Since my wife is about to take over the newsletter chores for an organization she belongs to this question came at a good time.

First thing I would do is create a data source for the mailing labels

Second I would create the newsletter or you could do the newsletter first it is your choice

Third I would use the Mail Merge function to create my mailing lables

There are a lot of parts to your question and I am going to direct you to some self help from Microsoft and others to start with.

If you still need some guidance after you look over and work a little with all this stuff write me back.

Good luck.

Dale :-)

Ps. Once you get started making these different documents be sure and Save often then backup you stuff.

Thanks to Johnny Rogers for a great step by step instructional video on how to Create a Newsletter With Microsoft Word 2007

Microsoft Office and Microsoft Word in particular is one of the most popular programs that our firm, Computer Help provides instruction, one on one tutoring and consultation. I personally use MS Word for almost every task: Envelopes, Mailing Labels, Database, WordArt, Interactive Forms, Faxes, Letters, Lists, Newsletters, Tables, Email Editor and much more. The exception, Graphics and Web Pages. For graphics I use Ulead's PhotoImpact and Microsoft's FrontPage for web site design.
