Mail Merge

Post by waltinfl » Sat Mar 07, 2015 5:55 pm

I've been using MS Word for over 20 years. I have my data bases in a Word table and use Mail Merge to extract the data for labels, envelopes, lists, etc. TextMaker Mail Merge will not see a .doc file. Is there any way to do this? I didn't find a way to convert tables to data base. I am using TexMaker 2012 Standard (rev 698).

TextMaker needs dBase-databases for its mail merge. You can use any Excel table, save it in PlanMaker in .dbf file format and then use it in TextMaker for mail merge.
