      creating a form letter from a word doc?

      Post

      I am trying to create a form letter using a letter that was created in microsoft word. This is what I did:

       

      Went to INSERT, OBJECT selected my word doc but evertime it dropes it into the layout the letter is larger than the standard page 8.5" x 11.5"

       

      Help please

       

      I'm hoping to include fields from my database in the letter to auto pop and then print out

          Howdy Thicks,

           

          In layout mode:

          Select the object (click on the page you added)

          Grab one of the little black squares in the corner

          Drag it to the size you want.

          It works just like it would in PPoint, Word or other graphic paste operation.  The main exception I see is that your cursor won't turn into an 'Drag Arrow'...it'll just stay a lowly cursor.

           

          Use the cool grey lines in layout mode as references to where the page edges are.
