Access One Entry In A Mail Merge Document?

Mar 27, 2012

I have set up a mail merged XtraReport, and it works fine. Now I want to access one entry in that mail merged report. By entry I mean the text associated with one row in the dataset, i.e. with the values filled in instead of having the square brackets with the field names.So if have an XRRichText in my report with the text "Hi [name]" I want access to the XRRichText object with the RTF value "Hi Sandy"..Added information in example, added VB.net tag

Attach Document For Mail Merge?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a macro where I send a confirmation e-mail per line out of Excel. I can attach a document with a fixed location (let's say a map stored at c:map.jpg) but I have a problem attaching a document that is specific to the recipient. [code]...

Is the code correct? Or is there a trick what to do with the cell content?

Mail Merge Into Word Document From Oracle

Nov 12, 2010

I am trying to get data from an Oracle database into an already created Word template which has the fields and OLEDB link already set up in it. I've tried some of the ways i've seen on here but it always seems to come back to the same answer that it pops up a 'Confirm Data Source' window in Word and then fails to connect. Does anyone know why this is happening or have any other way of doing it?

Mail Merge In Word?

Jun 29, 2009

I am trying to create a front end to a) add records to a mysql db (without been able to view, or edit or delete) which i have working and press a magic button which sets up a word mailmerge doc so that the venue managers just have to edit the document and click send. The code I have so far for this bit is

Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
If Venue.Text = "The Old Tramshed" Then
ConnectDatabase()

[code].....

The idea been, grab the email and firstname from the database. Write them to a locally stored word document which is used as the datasource for the mail merge. It opens the correct template and seems to create the same number of documents as is in the database, but i cannot click send in word (except to internet fax) as the email bit is greyed out.I was expecting the document to be started as an e-mail merge document, which the venue managers would then already have the correct template, put on the details they wish to send and then click finish mail merge and send documents.

Mail-merge HTML From A Database Into MS Word?

Oct 2, 2010

I am using this editor for the users to enter their text in the database interface environment that will both load/save/show them what they are working on in the form and also mail-merge into a Word document waiting for the content. I can do the first step and it works well, but how do I get MS Word to recognize HTML as formatting instead of just merging in tags and text all as text?

The tool has two relevant properties: one to get just the text (no markup, i.e. no HTML) and one to get the full markup with HTML. Both of these are in text format (which I use for easy storage in the Database).

ideas/directions I can think of:

1) use the clipboard. I can copy/paste the content straight from the editor window to Word and it works great! But loading from a database is significantly different, even when using the clipboard programatically. (maybe I don't understand how to use the clipboard tools)

2) maybe there is a library or class/function in Word that can understand the HTML as "mergable" content?

Database Driven Mail Merge Application Embedded?

Jun 24, 2010

I am trying to have letter templates (word documents) that are stored in sql server VarBinary(max) to be accessed via a web application where they will be edited and saved back to sql server by directors of our company. Then various managers will be able to select an existing template (word document), make any additions, and mail merge with a list of customers to print or save the letters.

I am looking to open up word within a web page much like you would an email in outlook, edit it with spell check and the like, and then save it back in sql server. I am able to get word to open from a file but it is outside of the web application in a separate word document. I am storing the word document in sql server but am unable to open it in word without having to save it to a disk (why should you have to go to a disk for viewing or editing?). I am able to programmatically mail merge but that is in a separate word application.

I am finding bits and pieces on the web but nothing that will pull things together such as embedding word but in a windows app not a web app. Mail merge from a file not from a database, converting a byte array to word in a directory but not on a web page.

.net - Process Launched From Service Can't Run Word Mail Merge In Win7?

Oct 5, 2010

In Win7, I am running a service which launches a process which hosts the office-library (Word 2007) for the purpose doing a mail-merge. There is no interface anywhere. When I launch the mail-merge process with the service as the parent, Word cannot create a document using my existing mail-merge Word doc. At first I thought the problem was with UAC so I changed the manifest to run as admin but it seems like that was irrelevant. When I launch the process from explorer or a non-service process instead of the service it works and is able to load Word and a document successfully. I used Process Monitor to see if I could get some clues as to what could be happening. As far as I can tell, when the proc is launched by the service it is using system profile since I see file paths such as c:windowssystem32configsystemprofile and c:windows mp instead of my user profile folders C:UsersUserNameAppDataRoamingApplication etc. My service is running as my username and not localsystem. I check the username using WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name and I get my correct username regardless of service/non-service invocation. I tried changing the Word startup path in the Application object but again it only succeeds in non-service mode. I tried creating the process from the service in both shell mode and non-shell mode and they both behave similarly. I think the problem could lie in the fact that when the proc is launched by the service the user belongs to NT Authority/Service but when launched any other way it is NT

Excel Remains Running As A Background Process After Performing Mail Merge And Exiting?

Aug 26, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that contains details of change requests; one row per request. This information needs to be copied into a Word form for sending off to our customer who then completes the response section. To speed up this process I have written some code that utilises the mail merge feature of Word and merges the relevant info from the spreadsheet into a Word form. This runs from Excel when a button is pressed.The problem comes when I go to save the workbook and exit Excel; it stays running in the background as a process in task manager.

[URL]

I'm fairly sure it has something to do with the merge code itself but my knowledge of VB is enough to grasp what is happening but not why it is happening. If I open the Word doc that has the merge fields in it, then open the spreadsheet that houses the info Excel says the workbook is already open.

Then he would like to click on a button and see a stack of these documents in 1 application of some sort.How can I display the stack of documents WITHOUT first opening WORD, then openinig EXCEL and then openining ADOBE ACROBAT - this would be really annoying for the user. I would like one unified application or some idea to mimic one in .NET that can just show all 3 documents as if they were printed one after the other on paper. (I hope I am explaining this clearly)

Word Template - Print The Document (Letter) With All The Merge Fields Filled

Jun 6, 2011

I have a program in which I am trying to do the mail merge with the word template that I already have.

I have already setup the datasource for the word template in the word itself and it is pointing to my Employee Table which has all the information for the employee. I have also inserted the merge fields in the document where ever I need them. Now I want to print the document (Letter) with all the merge fields filled in from my application but for only employee whose Name or Number I sent from my program not all the employees I have in the datasource.

Now if I have to do it in Word, we have an option called Find Recipient in Mailings -> Preview Results in which I can set the Name or Number of the employee to get all his information to do the merge but how can I do the same thing from my program.

I can send all the fields values from my code like in the code below but I want to use my datasource to provide values. I have employee's Number I want to provide to the template to find the employee - so all the values are filled based on the employee's Number.

RTF Characters Transferring To Mail Merged Document?

Communications :: Differentiating Bar Code Entry To Keyboard Entry?

Jul 10, 2009

I am trying to make a program with a bar code reader for the first time. I am programming with VB 2005. I want to differentiate a bar code entry to keyboard entry. My questions:

1. Does bar code reader generate a keydown (or keypress) event for each of the digits of the entry? For example, if the barcode read: 1234567890, does that mean that there will be 10 keydown (or keypress) events for that single barcode that was read?

2. I have read from the posts that the best way to differentiating keyboard vs bar code input is to analyse the time between keystroke (for less than certain number of milliseconds).

Generated MAPI Mail Going To Outlook Instead Of Default Mail Client

May 7, 2009

I have a piece of code which sends email with an attachment from my application. The code uses MAPI to send the email. It opens up a new email message so the user can add to the email message, and then the user clicks send.The code works fine. However there is one small problem. The email that the code opens, is always in Microsoft Outlook. Sometimes the application's user has Outlook Express set up as the default client, but my application always opens the new email message in Microsoft Outlook. (Outlook 2003. In the one user's machine that has Outlook 2007, everything works fine and the email opens up in Outlook Express.)As I searched for a solution, I saw this problem posed many times in various places on the Internet, with no solution (or none that worked). I did try several suggestions which involved creating registry settings and registering some dlls.
