    From letter from a report

    I'm looking for a way to generate a form letter from a query or report. Can I do this in Access or should I mail merge?

    You can do it either way.

    If you have to have formatting then use merge to word (Using code not the Office Links on the Tools Menu).

    If is just a standard letter that does not require any fancy formatting then you can use a report.

    Any further help post back.

    Just after I posted I noticed that you are using 2007 - I can't help you as I only have 2000 & 2003

    John,
    Anything that works in ac2003 will/should work in ac2007.
