    Mass letter creation using MSWord and templates

    Hello to everyone!
    I have a problem here with my application. I need to automate the creation of letters that are to be sent out to numerous recipients and each letter has to be filled with its own recipient's details. I tried to do that using Word.Application and Word.Template but I only went as far as to load MsWord and create a document with a template. Has anybody else had the same problem before?
    I would really appreciate any help on my problem.
    Thank you

    Welcome to DevX

    Those are steps in the right direction.

    It would seem now, that you need to look into Word's mail merge feature.

    Before stepping into this programmatically, do you know how to do a mail merge, in Word, manually?
