Re: libgda/libgnomedb/mergeant 0.9 have been released

Congratulations to the gnome-db team!

Yay!! Congrats!

Dom recently committed code to enable mail merge features in abiword. I
hope we can hook that up with gnome-db/gnumeric to enable easy generation
of documents from databases and spread-sheets.

If you'll look at the abiword-plugins/tools/gda/unix/AbiGDA.cpp you'll see exactly what you're looking for, Martin, albeit in a bit of an embryonic form. Hopefully by tonight I'll have something worth announcing to the AbiWord mailing list. After that, hopefully I'll flag down someone with a copy of MSWord to see how they do mailmerge, because multi-row SQL resultsets are precisely what I want to integrate into Abi, in addition to our current single-row capacities.
