I was looking for how to perform a mail merge using a SharePoint list as a source and found Wayne’s post asking the same question. There wasn’t help there, however, amongst the comment was on from Yatin Purohit indicating that you could link to the SharePoint list as a table in Access and then use the Access table as a source for Word to use in a mail merge. It’s a pretty useful technique — too bad there’s not an OLEDB driver for SharePoint lists. I suppose this will work for now.
I have a number of merge web parts for creating Word documents, sending out eMails and sending out SMS messages. Please mail for further information.
