2. As shown earlier in Figure 10.1, click Type a New List, Use an Existing List,
or Choose from Outlook Contacts. If you choose the fi rst or third option, you can

3. In the Select Data Source dialog box (Figure 10.15), change the All Data Sources
list to a particular fi le type if desired.

4. Navigate to the location of the fi le, select it, and click Open.
5. Respond to any additional prompts as needed, such as selecting a delimiter or
table as described earlier, and click OK.
Note that once you’ve attached a data source to the document, Edit Recipient List and a
number of other tools on the Mailings tab are no longer grayed out. If you plan to use the
entire database, you can skip the following section.
