Default Mail Merge using Microsoft Outlook as the Source for 'Recipient Li

I would like to use Microsoft Contacts as the source for €˜Mail Merge
Recipients. When trying to do so, I find the €˜mail merge recipients box
will not let me edit categories of information. I cannot do so using
€˜Contacts in Outlook, because I cannot find how to add fields or a place for
a new type of information from which the €˜mail merge recipient list can take
the information. For instance, if I want to have Esquire appear by some
names and Attorney for others how can I have a new box in Outlook from with
the mail merge can get that information of edit the €˜mail merge recipient
list (which I seem not to be able to do when the list for the information is
from Contacts in Outlook. Thanks for any help.

See the "Mailmerge from Outlook" item on fellow MVP Graham Mayor's website
at:
http://www.gmayor.com/mailmerge_from_outlook.htm

If that does not provide you with a means to do what you are after, you can
use your Outlook contacts as the data source for a Directory type mail merge
in the main document of which you insert the mergefields into the cells of a
1 row table. When you execute that merge to a new document, that document
will contain a table with one row of data for each of your contacts. You
can then add additional columns to the table into which you can insert other
information that you require and insert a row at the top of the table into
which you enter names for the fields so that the document can be used as a
mail merge data source.
