For constructing word documents and implementing a mail merge, we have used the word product from Aspose. http://www.aspose.com/categories/file-format-components/aspose.words-for-.net-and-java/default.aspx

It allows you to create and manipulate MS word documents from behind without having to install Office on the server.

As far as the front end goes, I imaging you could use any RTF text editing control and use place holders like {ContactName} in the string to represent where the substition would go.

Havent done exactly what you are looking for, but based on past experience I think the Aspose control might be a good place to start.

I guess, I will delete the question now as I did not get a response I was expecting and got help from somewhere else. FYI, TxControl and textDynamic are very good controls for this purpose.
