We are trying to develop a COM object to automate the
following process so that it can be called in a batch
type mode on an NT server.
accept input data file name - list.csv (say)
accept merge template file name - list.doc
accept merged output file name - list.pdf
run MS Word to perform the mail merge
output results to the Acrobat PDFwriter print driver
to produce the output file.
We can acheive most of it but the problems we get are
1. stopping or overidding the dialogue boxes for the
2. detecting any errors that may occurr inside MS Word
and being able to process them - the thread locks up.
We have tried several variations but it seems to be
getting very long winded and it should be simpler.
We welcome any suggestions.
