MYOB Training: Exporting MYOB Data for an Excel Mail Merge

MYOB Training Course Exported Accounts list

We recently created 9 new training videos for our online MYOB training course and one of them demonstrated how to export and import data from an MYOB training company datafile. Exporting and importing is used to extract transaction and sales information and also customer or supplier card files from MYOB to use with Microsoft Excel in performing mail merges.
