Hello, I have to create multiple copies of a file for my school. The file is created with Word 2003 and contains surname, name and password for each of the students. This means I'd have to create hundreds of files.

Since I have surname, name and password in an Excel file, is it possible to have Word automate this, maybe with fields or something else? So that Word automatically creates the files, or at least reads the data from the Excel file.
I have zero experience with Word macros and scripting, mind you.
