  • A Pop-up Calendar for Word - Part 1: A Simple Calendar
    Word's Insert Date tool will insert the current date into your document in a choice of formats, but it doesn't provide you with a calendar. This tutorial shows you how to use a VBA UserForm to create a handy pop-up calendar that you can call from a keyboard shortcut or from the right-click menu.

    Sometimes you need to run a mail merge and include information that isn't included in your data source. Perhaps it is different for each addressee, or changes each time you run the merge. Fix it with Ask fields.
  • Using Query Options in a Word Mail Merge
    You needn't send your mail shot to everyone on your list! As your database grows you will want to choose who to mail to, and perhaps sort your letters into a particular order. The good news is that Mail Merge has a tool for this, Query Options, and you don't need to interfere with your database.
