    This tutorial will save me 14 hours in the next month alone. Thanks.

    Even with a fairly basic knowledge of indesign I was able to learn this tool in about 10 minutes after watching.

    "that’s not an apostrophe", "I have no idea what that stands for", "whatever" – than go home and do your homework properly. Lasting till the end of this video is just too hard…

    Best tutorial voiceover.  I’m a lady and can’t stand it when other ladies do voiceovers that are are timid or dull.  Way to go.

    cultural28 you surely are the most boring, dry and humour-less human in existence. Loosen your piano key tie and appreciate some humour. You too skewer324

    So what. It helped me out of a jam when my old mail merge program decided that it didn’t want to work any more. Thank you, I much prefer a friendly voice with some attitude that a robot sounding, over technical dweeb.

    so many awkward pauses and extraneous information, and this is still the shortest video for this. 😛 I don’t even want to know what lies in the other videos

    I like your voice and your sense of humor, but as a fellow instructor, I would suggest you have a very concrete example that you’ve totally ironed out first. Practice. Rehearse. You clearly know what you’re doing, but it comes across like you don’t (and that you’re unprofessional) when you make minor mistakes and have lots of "umm"s and "blah blah blah"s.

    Whenever I forget how to mail merge, I get all happy because that means I can watch this tutorial again.

    This video was equal parts of terrific information and humorous informality.  It got the job done! Thank you!!!!

    Helpful tutorial and as others have mentioned, the dry humour is great. Makes me wonder why all other Youtube tutorials are so serious

    Great tutorial – don’t understand the negative comments! Ah well, you can’t please everyone I suppose!

    This was definitely one of the most entertaining tutorials (especially given how dry the subject matter is) that I’ve seen in a while, kudos!

    Thank you for teaching me to do mail merges with InDesign. I had no idea how to approach it, and the instructions on the Adobe website were incomprehensible. Because of this video, I can complete my assignment. MANY THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
