Correct Answer - Option 4 : Microsoft Powerpoint

The correct answer is Microsoft Powerpoint.

  • Microsoft Powerpoint is not a valid data source in a mail merge.
  • Mail merge is a feature within most data processing applications that enables users to send a similar letter or document to multiple recipients.
  • It primarily automates the process of sending bulk mail to customers, subscribers, or general individuals.
  • Mail merge works with two documents, the data file, and the letter template.
    • The data file includes the information of the recipients to whom the letter is to be sent.
    • The second file is the word document or the letter template. The recipients' information on the letter template is kept empty. When the mail merge process is initiated, the recipients' data from the spreadsheet or database data file is fetched and placed within the empty field in the letter, one by one, until all letters are created.
  • Excel Worksheet, Outlook Contacts List, and MS Access Database are valid data sources.
  • Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program. It was released on April 20, 1987, initially for Macintosh computers only. Microsoft acquired PowerPoint three months later.
  • The program uses slides to convey information rich in multimedia.
