Personalizing Documents with Address Book and Numbers Data


When you want to personalize a document for multiple recipients, you specify
an Address Book group or select multiple individual cards, or choose a table in
a Numbers document. Pages creates a separate version of the content for each
Address Book contact or Numbers record. In each version of the document, the
same sender data is used, but the merge fields are personalized. Personalized results
can be printed or saved in a new document with a section for each contact.
