    I am considering the purchase of iWork. From what I understand I can open Excel documents in Numbers.

    I work for a non-profit where I receive Excel lists of volunteers, etc. Currently, I "manually" copy the names and addresses from those lists into Address Book. They are divided into a series of Groups of about 20 names each. When we have a mailing to send out I re-send the message to each group.

    This works well but I wonder if there is a more direct way to email the groups from Numbers.

    Thanks - KF

    You should look into some mass mailer type of programs.

    Do you need to print envelopes or labels using the list you receive in the Excel file? If that is the case, and if you have Word, you may do it more easily in Word from the Tools command -> Envelopes or Labels, and using as data source the excel file...

    Don't know if this can be done with number and pages... :apple:

    Edit... You can also try doing it using NeoOffice, which is an office compatible app and is free... there's a wizard in Tools -> Mail merge Wizard
