Merging a Form Letter with Its Data Source

After you specify the data source you want to use and enter merge fields in the form letter, you can preview the merged letters before performing the actual merge. You can exclude recipients during this preview. When you are ready, you can either send the merged letters directly to the printer or you can merge them one after the other into a new document, separated by page breaks. If you merge to a new document, you have another chance to review and, if necessary, edit the merged letters before sending them to the printer.

In this exercise, you will preview merged letters, exclude recipients from the merge, merge the letters into a new document, and then save the merged file.
