Nor should you expect to do so.
A word processor _can_ produce flyers and brochures, but it
doesn't do these things well because that is not what it is
designed to do.
A spreadsheet _can_ store and sort data but it doesn't do these

Unless you have compelling reasons for storing names and addresses
in a mathematical manipulation program, you would be best advised
to export to CVS, transfer to a database and avoid any further
