I have a list of names and addresses in a word file on my computer. In order to use Microsoft Word's Mail Merge I have to have those names and addresses in a recipient list. I go to create a recipient list and it seems like I have to enter each name and address in again individually. Is there any way to speed up this process because I have a few hundred names and it would be a serious pain to type all of them in individually.

Yes, I have always done this in excel, but in word it's here, and for directions in excel its here. They do a good job of giving instructions, but its long, so I will not reproduce the whole thing here.
