Mailmerge

Post by sten2006 » Thu Apr 12, 2007 2:34 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to do the following:

I have a Word mailmerge list of names and addresses (with an account number). I would like to send (from Word) a standard letter to each address and generate a pdf file for each letter (not one large pdf with all the letters).
Each pdf should be named as the account number (eg A12345.pdf).
All the Files to be put into a named folder.

We have the PDF-Xchange SDK, though I presume an end-user licence would be required to do this ?

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

It should be possible to code this using the SDK if you create an application to open Word, generate the mail merged letter and then print to the SDK driver passing your SDK license info as part of your code - then using the MAPI or SMTP methods provided output to a suitable mail client or Server.

You would really need to use the OFFice COM object to achieve a smooth and desire-able app - but it is perfectly possible.

There is a lot of info available on using Office COM here which should get you started :
