    ok i am not sure if a mail merge is what i want. what i want is in my app to have a textbox with a persons info.

    example:

    Thank you for trying our sofware [name] we hope you enjoyed our software

    [name] would be a field from my database but i want the message editable so it can be changed at run time

    That example is in .NET (C#), not C++.

    If you want this setup as a word document, you can use a Bookmark to place the name which you would retrieve from your database via a query.
