You can have a look here:
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/MailMerge/MergeWithAttachments.htm

but it's going to depend on where the attachment/s is/are and whether you want to send the same one or a different one to each recipient.

The process that peter57r posted works well, though, the site he sent you to is a little hard to understand.  Try this instead.  Same process, just a little easier to understand:

In response to finalword, thank u for your input, which is really very clever - gosh, a cute way of doing things.  

But in the documentation i am stuck on how to do  "run the script, 'outlook mail merge attachment.vbs' " which adds the attachment to all emails in the outbox.  
I am sorry hope u could please help me in this, as this is the only missing link. Thank u.

You should be able to just double click the .vbs file and it should run.  Here is a link to site the gives you mulitple ways to run it though:
