Word or Filemaker for generating reports as letters?

Post

How can I generate a letter from my database? I wish the trigger to be the filling in of a specific date field, but I don't know how to go further than that...

Do I create a letter template within Filemaker, or export to a Word doc for instance? And if there are many different alternative versions of the same letter that depend on info kept in the database, how do I get the correct data into the letter? 

Is there a way to have a button that somehow generates a list of questions, the answers to which define the info to go in the letter? Or can a script automatically do the selecting depending on the database info?

TIA
