Mailmerge To Ms-Word

This code makes a text file which is supported by MS-Word mailmerge.

Put this code in a viewaction and select some documents. After clicking the
button the scripts askes you for an filename and creates a mailmerge record in
this file for each selected doc.
You can than use the file created in MS-Word as a mailmergefile.

Good luck
