    Question Mail Merge on the Mac?
    Hello,

    I am brand new to the forums here! I have a question that I would like to ask...

    About two years ago, I switched to a Mac and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! It's a wonderful machine. Recently, I've been showing my dad what I can do with a Mac -- and now, he wants to switch from his PC to a Mac too. However, I'm not too sure he can do his business stuff on a Mac...

    Here's what he needs to do:

    1) Word processing
    2) Spreadsheets
    3) Database (Simple mailing list, with a few additional fields)
    4) Perform Mail Merge, Print Envelopes and / or create Mailing Labels

    Can a Mac do this? Right now, he's using Microsoft Works, but would love to switch to a Mac.

    If you know how, (or have any ideas or suggestions), please let me know!

    seems like all of that can be done with Microsoft Office for Mac... except maybe the database thing, Office Mac doesn't include Access... could he do that in Excel? I'm sure there's some other piece of database software for Mac...

    FileMaker is the usual candidate.
