Getting ready to send a holiday mailing - a sleigh full of gifts, holiday cards, party invitations, or thank-you notes? Manage all your mailing addresses in an Excel spreadsheet. When it's saved to your OneDrive, your family and friends can coauthor it, and add or edit entries. Watch the next video to see how Word can easily convert the addresses in your Excel sheet to mailing labels or envelopes.

  3. Enter names and addresses.

  4. To turn your list into a table, click Format as a Table, select a style, and then click OK.
