Default Mail merge data source problem


How might I use an RDBMS datasource for my mail merge file? I wan't to do
this in C#, but I can't find any examples.

Hi Hamid,

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you want; how you want to handle the
data source is not clear. But based on requests I've seen from "web page
people", I'm guessing you want to hold the data in a stream and feed it to the
mail merge.

Word's mail merge does not support this. Word requires a flat-table, saved to disk.

I need to write a html page that opens a word document and does an automatic
mail merge with the data that I supply to it from within the mailmerge and
not the ususal data source.

I have the data in javascript, all I need to do is run word, give it the
data and then do a mil amerge.
