  • Gopher Training Class

    Welcome everyone to the Gopher training class. Our topic is using Gopher along with the mail merge feature in Microsoft Word.

    You can use Mail Merge to create customized letters, flyers or create envelopes. Please note that your invoices are designed to be used with cleared windowed envelopes, so this procedure would not be needed for invoices.

    In this example we will create envelopes to send out flyers or newsletters.

    All are welcomed to ask questions or post answers. Please share with us how you use Gopher with mail merger.
