Mail Merge

According to Wikipedia – Mail Merge is creating personalized mass mailings based on a document template providing data from a database or a spreadsheet.

Mail Merge with MS Office

MS Excel does a great job as a database. In an MS Excel worksheet you can manipulate and format data. Unfortunately you cannot define mail merge layout with MS Excel as it lacks of a word processor.

With MS Word you can create sophisticated mail merge templates but MS Word as a database does not work at all.

Mail Merge with Edi

Edi combines the advantages of MS Word and MS Excel in a single unit. Due to the built-in spreadsheet and word processor, Edi can easily switch between the two views and mail merge within minutes.

In the spreadsheet view you manage and format the mail merge data. After switching to the word processor view you create the mail merge layout. Active coupling of the spreadsheet with the word processor results with constant updating the mail merge fields inside the word processor view. The mail merge fields can be easily dragged from the field list into the mail merge template. Creating mail merge templates was never so easy before.

If you don't like to recreate your existing documents with Edi - no problem, Edi can work with MS Excel, MS Word and OpenOffice documents.
