11. One powerful use of a database is mail merge. To mail merge you need two things.

Name them.


Your club secretary has created a membership database. You decide to send a personalize a letter to the members. There are four places in the letter where you want to merge in the person's name. You discover that the <<name>> field contains: Mr./Mrs. First name Last name. How will this appear in the mail merged form letter? Use your name to fill in the blanks below.
