MAIL MERGE in WORD using EXCEL RESULTS as database

QUESTION 1). Is there a FORMULA and/or VB CODE way for MAIL MERGING to WORD from EXCEL? :confused: Hence a word document would be created, however I guess this would cause some issues:
~ If started in EXCEL instead of WORD then LETTER without elabourate HEADER, FOOTER, logos, unless all paper in printer is already LETTERHEADED.
~ Alternatively prompt EXCEL to use a designated TEMPLATE
Anyway the attached sample files work.
