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?
Thanks

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.
