I have an app which needs to mimic mail merge where users create a template rtf file and data is merged from the database to create a merged list.

Can myLittleWriter help?

Open to any ideas.

You should be able to do this using Custom Variables:

Write Only

N represents an integer from 1 to 10 (i.e. mlw_var_1, mlw_var_2, ... mlw_var_10)

This is used in conjunction with addHTML and addHTMLFile Methods. This allows you to place special tags <MLW_VAR_N> in your HTML. These tags will then be replaced with the property value. The purpose of this method is to allow the creation of special template type files so that documents can be created from various data sources on the fly.

mlwObj.mlw_var_1 = "Elian"
mlwObj.mlw_var_2 = ""
mlwObj.addHTML "Dear <MLW_VAR_1>, we well received your order and we will shorly send you the invoice to <MLW_VAR_2>"
