I have collated a list of doctors clinics and their addresses into a pdf file- can I use mail merge with this pdf file to create address labels? Appreciate instructions ( video format even better!) how to do this

IMO, you would be better getting the data into a Word or Excel format, and doing the mail merge there.

This is something more commonly done in InDesign. If you have access to an Excel file or text file, that would be better than a pdf. If you only have a pdf, you could try exporting it to an Excel or text file. You can download a free template (available from the label manufacturer in various sizes) and simply copy and paste into it, if you don't have too many addresses.

I would [respectively] disagree with the "commonly" part for simple address labels.
