You can create a custom contact list report in Reckon Accounts business range (Desktop).

You can then export that report into an Excel workbook.

You can use Excel workbooks as a data source in combination with a Microsoft Word letter template to create customised letters which you can personalise and send out.

In Reckon Accounts Hosted generate the report that contains your contact list:

1. Click the Reports menu
2. Select Lists
3. Select Customer Contact List
4. Click the Modify Report button

In the Display tab, select only the necessary column headers

5. Click the Export button to generate a new Excel workbook (XLS)

6. Click the Export button

7. Use the Mail Merge function of your wordprocessor such as Microsoft Word to create your letter and use the contact details in the Excel workbook
