250 Points WORD mailmerge with VB
Posted on 1998-05-29
This is the second time that i ask this question.
The first time was on 5/12/98 (100 points).
The one who nows a solution for this problem must send 2 times to get 250 points.
How do i mail merge (Word 7.0 or Word97) with VB5 ?
It is possible to do this with access. So it must be possible with VB.
The template file 'template.doc' containts fields who are stored in the access database work.mdb in the table adres.
The file template.doc is the main document
Work.mdb within the table adres is my data source.
I have already opened the table adres and its points to the record (name,adres, cyty) i want to substitute this values in the fields of the template.doc and save the template.doc as new.doc.
After the fields are subsituted i don't want to close the document new.doc for futher editing.
If there is already an active Word-document i don't want to start a second word application but i want to use 'open' in Word.
