          Just a quick note to say fmp2Word is NOT a mail merge utility, it is a Word "bookmark" substitution utility, used to send an individual record (or anything you can put in a setfield script step) to your already formatted pre-prepared Word document.

           

          fmp2Word, simply moves the data, NOT formatting, to the word document. It does preserve tabs and FileMaker end-of-line markers with no maximum of text per bookmark or bookmarks per document.

           

          Naturally, the bigger the document, the more bookmarks and the larger the amount of data, the longer to create & fill the document.

            As you can see it's been a while with technical (and other difficulties) but on the 1st October 2017, version 3 of fmp2Word, an automated, x-platform, server compatible FileMaker based utility linking FileMaker to MS Word will be released. The website is currently being updated with the latest information regarding V16 of FileMaker, including screenshots, how to video's and registration of interest.  All those who have already sent inquires for the demo (which IS THE unregistered .fmp12 file) will receive an advanced copy and advice of website updates as they come along.

            Thank you for being patient, a huge amount of testing for compatibility on OS's, versions of Word and version of FileMaker have made this project one that almost was not going to be delivered. It is near to 10 years in development and version 2 (Windows only) released many years continues to operate every day for 100+ users in server environments.  It is an exciting time for me
