I am currently using Microsoft Outlook 2007. My boss informs me that in the earlier version he could pull up a contact from his contact list and be able to automatically insert it into a letter using word. I see where you can do for email or a phone call, but not a letter. Can you help me?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

One option is, on the mailing tab, Select Recipients in the mail merge area, then choose Outlook Contacts – this is a bit cumbersome for one contact though…. tbh, i don;t know of another way.

your boss may be referring to the address book icon. Once you add this icon to the toolbar you can click and select contacts from global address list or your personal contacts. Selecting the contact adds it into your document. To add the icon go to Office button/word options/customize and select all commands and look address book. Hope that helps.

    You might want to check out the possibilities of importing/exporting the digital business card or vCard of the contact (*.vcf).
