Mail Merge is a feature of LibreOffice that allows you to write a template letter with predefined fields and then populate that template with fields from a database. This is very useful if you need to send the same letter to a number of people with only small changes like the name and address of the person you're sending it to.

Project Description

Mail Merge is a feature of LibreOffice that allows you to write a template letter with predefined fields and then populate that template with fields from a database. This is very useful if you need to send the same letter to a number of people with only small changes like the name and address of the person you're sending it to. After downloading the mailmerge.odt and opening it you can use the macros contained in the document. Edit the template as you see fit and then run the macros using the menus: Tools → Macros → Run Macros mailmerge.odt → Standard → Mail → DoManualMailMerge NOTE: The macros connect to a database and will do nothing if that database is not available. So you can not expect it to just work from downloading the file alone.
