Filemaker database merge with Word 2007

Post

Hello,

I got a serious question:

Is it possible to merge a filemaker table (from the database) with a Word 2007 file? With the DDE script i think it's possible. See the code at the bottom as preview:

[code]

"[FileNew.Template =\""&FILENAME&"\"]"&
"[EditReplace.Find=\"<<firstName>>\",.Replace=\""& WriteToWord::nameFirst&"\",.ReplaceAll,.Wrap=1]"&
"[EditReplace.Find=\"<<lastName>>\",.Replace=\""& WriteToWord::nameLast&"\",.ReplaceAll,.Wrap=1]"

[/code]

 

The big thing is that some fields had to be replaced with the data of the table.

 

Hopefullysomeone hasa solution.

 

Kind regards,
Jan Jaap van der Sluijs
