Mail Merge hell!

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I need help.

Over the years, several people have showed me how to do a mail merge - all in different ways. Now I need to do one and I've no idea how to do it, I'm taking bits from each way I've been told and really messing it up - I've looked at you tube and it's still not clicking!

Do you have a simple, fool proof way of getting this done before I implode with frustration 🤯

Hi if you still need help with this, try following the instructions in the Step by Step Mailmerge wizard in Microsoft Word itself, it's actually pretty straightforward. Good luck!

Exactly what aire said, the Wizard is good.
But do you need to go back a bit further - do you know how to create and save your data in e.g. Excel and then close that file.
Either open the Word doc which you want to mailmerge into, or start a new document
Is it just after that you're stuck?
