In open office you set evolution as a data source then use the data
source you create for mail merge. This is NOT a evolution question
though its an open office question (so email me off list if you need
more details). I've not tried it with any other kind of word proscessor.
(anyone have any idea why the Catlog data doesn't get imported along
with the rest) a related question, is there any easy way to export
Evolution data to a ldap server?

I have now worked with evolution 1.4 for several weeks and thanks to
your answers I start liking it more and more. It is one of the best

(I'm not much of a "power user")
Jeff! Mate! Mailmerge is as old as the hills, even my C=64 word
processors did it. Its where you put custom fields into a form letter
based on a database, thus generating 'n' targetted letters.
Anyway this is a question for open office people. oo might do it, i
doubt staroffice would talk directly to evo.
