• Question: I have a folder in which I've placed 10 letters created and formatted with necessary merge criteria.

    I have a spreadsheet which strores all the information needed for the various letters.

    Can a program be developed to look at the spreadsheet, identify the letter needed (name of letter in first column), open the word document to merge onto and automatically merge and print? This would need to be repeated for every letter on the spreadsheet (these 10 letters may be called for 100+ times).

    If there is a way to do this, is it something the "simple" mind can understand and accomplish? I'm just knowledgeable enough to be dangerous. :)

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

  • I'm sorry, I'm not going to be very helpful. You are asking if it can be done. Yes, it can, because somewhere in the megazillions of files on my pc, I've got a setup JUST like you describe. But I've no idea where to look for it and couldn't give it to you anyway 'cause it's confidential...but I DO know that it can be done...yes.

  • Goodmorning Dreamboat and thank you for taking the time to respond. I understand about the confidentiality. It's at least a start that you've confirmed this is feasiable...or is that plausable? Regardless, you've given me hope to continue searching.

    Have a great day. I'm also from the chilly state of PA. :)
    Thank you,
