"Dear <<Phone_7>>", to print out "Dear Chuck," or "Dear Mr Adams" if you prefer.
If you wanted to become fancier, you could use the next field up ("Phone_6") to store a title like Dr., Mr., Ms., etc., and use "Phone_7" for the surname.
So, "Dear <<Phone_6>> <<Phone_7>>" could become "Dear Dr. Jones" or "Dear Ms. Jones".
One disadvantage with this method is that you have to have data in "Phone_7" (and "Phone_6" if you use it) in all the records you are going to merge. Another disadvantage is that you may actually need that many phone fields, in which case I use the notes field to keep track of the extra phone numbers.
