Excel help: mail merge specific items

ok .. my boss gave me an excel sheet of about 75 names and addresses. There are three letters, and the addresses could be used for any one of the three letters as needed.

Is there a way to mark certain addresses for certain letters? That way when I merge the addresses into the letter, only those tagged for that letter will merge?

Wow, Mail Merge seems to have changed since I last used it.

Anyway, assuming an Excel->Word merge, it seems that (in Word) you can use a conditional Skip Record If under Insert Word Field (Mail Merge toolbar). So, if want to add a column in the Excel file as a checkbox for the merge, then Skip Record If new-column not ' ', or new-column equal Letter A,B,C, it will work.
