Default Mail Merge Many URLs in one email by common email address

I have a spreadsheet of many URLs in one column and a list of email addresses in an adjacent column. I've been googling and reading tutorials and I haven't been able to figure out what it is that I'm trying to do.

What I would like to do is mail merge to my inbox a single email per email address which contains all of the URLs associated with the email address.

For example, consider the following spreadsheet:
Code:
URL                               email
http://www.example.com/1          owner@example.com
http://www.example.com/2          owner@example.com
http://www.example.com/3          owner@example.com
http://www.otherexample.com/1     owner@otherexample.com
http://www.otherexample.com/2     owner@otherexample.com
I would like to send a single email to owner@example.com with the following info:
http://www.example.com/1
http://www.example.com/2
http://www.example.com/3

as well as an email to owner@otherexample.com with the following:
http://www.otherexample.com/1
http://www.otherexample.com/2



I'm having the hardest time understanding the syntax of mail merge logic statements. Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks!

You can't do this with Word's standard mailmerge tools. However, you can do so using the approach detailed in my Microsoft Word Catalogue/Directory Mailmerge Tutorial, available at:
http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...ngs-(2000-2010)
or
http://www.gmayor.com/Zips/Catalogue%20Mailmerge.zip

The tutorial covers everything from list creation to the insertion & calculation of values in multi-record tables in letters. Do read the tutorial before trying to use the mailmerge document included with it.

Thanks for the response. I've looked at your tutorial, however, I had non stop problems. I must say, I really dislike mail merge logic syntax. At this point I went ahead and created new spreadsheets with all of the cells combined by hand. I will mark this thread solved since this tutorial may very well help someone else.

As mentioned in the tutorial, it is sometimes easier to do the data manipulation at the source. For a recent macro implementation of this in Excel, similar to what you appear to have done by hand, see: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...l=1#post902661

The biggest issue you're going to have using Office 2008 for any of these approaches is that it has no macro support.
