Advise on filemaker to word

Once I tried to make filemaker to put adressinformation on fixed places on a word document.
Kan anybody advise the best method.
One could be to make an export and open up a worddocument and have a macro make an import of that record.
One method could be some xml or dde method.
Please to create this, what would be the easiest way?

Filemaker changed som odbc-features in FP8. I did not make it I guess.
I installed the ODBC package from the cd but when I try to share a singe table I can not.
I can set the ODBC sharing in the fmp-file but I can not configure the SequeLink Driver.
I try tjo put up a system DNS
I give the connection a name
I put a name in host box. I put "localhost" or the actual local ip
What do I write in the port name. According to Sequlink the original is 19996
When I try to searc for a file the system give me an error. TCPIP error.
What is tranlate in this case should it be used?

Do you know how this should be done in FM8

I am unfortunately a bit overloaded with work so I have to apologise I can't try things for you right now, so I'd like to introduce the following document to you first:


Hopefully it provides the answers.

The correct port for ODBC access to FileMaker 8 is 2399.
Port 19996 is used by DataDirect SequeLink Server, which is a different thing.
Also, make sure this port isn't being blocked by any firewall software you may have running.
