Performing a Mail Merge from the Contacts Folder

When performing a mail merge from Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 contacts to Microsoft Word, I can't find the merge field that corresponds to Outlook's Job Title field. Where is it?

To obtain the best results in Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2002 and to make the most fields available, you should always start a merge not from Word but from the Contacts folder itself. From the Tools, Mail Merge dialog box, choose All Contact Fields. When the merge document opens in Word, you'll be able to click the Insert Merge Fields button in the Mail Merge toolbar and, from the Database Fields list, select Job_Title as the field to insert, as Figure 1 shows.
