Create a button in Excel that create a mail merge in Word

I have a list in Excel that I add to each day. A few times a month I take this list and create a mail merge in Word. Is there a way to automate this process with some kind of button in Excel where I click on this button, it then creates the mail merge for me in Word? It would also be nice it the merge in Word remembered my format. I basically print 2 addresses per 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I cut the 8 1/2 x 11 sheet in half. So one address is at the top and the other is on the bottom half. I am just trying to find ways to make the mail merge be a little more automated. Any ideas? Thanks!

My spreadsheet with address has these columns...if it helps:
CustomerName, Address1, Address2, City, State, Zip

Why not just set up the merge document in Word and start the process from the saved Word document.

Probably easiest in Word if you set up a table with two cells with the merge fields in the necessary format.

Additions to the list in Excel will be automatically recognised when you refresh the data link in Word.

Thanks Rob! So how do I setup that data link?

Use the Mail Merge wizard in Word to create the document, one step of which will be to define data source.
