How do you do Mail Merge on an Apple?

I would like to do a letter Mail Merge on Apple. I have Office and iWork. Is there anyway to do it in the first place? Also, if there is, could you drop me a link because I can't find one.

First, the answer is YES.

Second, Do you want to create physical mail letters or e-mail?

Third, I don't know anything about iWork, but in Office 04, you will find it inordinately helpful to click on the assistant and type "mail merge" as your help search. They can describe it better than I can. Actually this is true regardless of the answer to #2. The system in Office 04 looks by-and-large similar to the one in Office on PCs to me....

(P.S. shortly after you do that, if you're talking about e-mail, you will find that to do it in Office requires you to use Entourage. Prolly because it supports HTML mail and Mail.app doesn't. Or possibly because MS hates you. )

It doesn't? How does it handle fonts and colours then?

You can read it but you can't create it. You *can* create rich text e-mail though, that contains colors and fonts.

Thanks for all the help. That makes it alot easier. Its actual letters, so don't worry about Entourage.
