11. One powerful use of a database is mail merge. To mail merge you need two things.
Your club secretary has created a membership database. You decide to send a personalize a letter to the members. There are four places in the letter where you want to merge in the person's name. You discover that the <<name>> field contains: Mr./Mrs. First name Last name. How will this appear in the mail merged form letter? Use your name to fill in the blanks below.
We are working hard to make the club a more personal experience. We are contacting you, <<name>>____________________ to
get your input and ask for assistance. <<name>> _________________________begin by asking yourself, "How can I contribute to this goal?"
We noticed you have not attended the last few meetings, <<name>> ____________________________.
We certainly miss seeing you <<name>> _____________________________ . What activities or speakers would be of interest to you?
Read the note - Sounds silly doesn't it? Certainly, the letter is not at all personal!
