Word Mail Merge and Macros

Developing for Dynamics GP has info on using Word's Mail Merge Feature and GP's Macro feature to import data when other options (Integration Manager, eConnect, Table Import, etc) are either not available or not a reasonable alternative. David Musgrave does a nice job with the coverage of this topic and if that's not enough, it's been covered extensively in the GP Newsgroup and elsewhere so there are lots of resources to help with this.

As Dave points out, this works well when the data is consistent and the macro doesn't have to make choices based on the data.
