An all Access mail merge feature was added Mar 6, 2004. This allows users to create simple mailmerge output without using a word processing program such as MS Word.
The DH QBF is a complete query by form applet that can be easily integrated into any existing Access application. Typically, the functionality provided by DH QBF can replace many "canned" reports. The developer imports several forms, tables, a query, and a report from the DH_QBF.mdb, creates some master queries, and deploys.
The developer creates one or more master queries that join tables, alias field names, create calculated columns, etc. The users can then select a master query (datasource) from a drop-down and then select up to 30 fields from the master query. Users can define sorting and criteria as well as grouping and totaling. All of this "design" information is stored in two tables for re-use.
The results of the queries are displayed in a datasheet subform contained in a main form. The main form has options to send/export the records to print, Word table, Word merge, Excel, HTML, CSV, Merge to Report, or a graph. Most formats allow he user to automatically open the target application. The Word merge process will open a new Word document and link to the merge fields.
