  3. In Microsoft Word, if any prompts for an SQL command or macros display, click Yes.  
  4. From this point, steps will vary based on your version of Microsoft Word.
    • Start with the Mail Merge Wizard and follow the steps provided on screen.
    • For any questions on merging, use the Help menu within Microsoft word.
