It's not too hard. Various versions of Word do it slightly differently, so you should read the application help in Word. Look up Merge Fields or Merge Data. Some newer versions of Word can access FileMaker databases directly, otherwise you may need to export to a text file and access that for your Merge Data.

I'm not sure if you can get Word to just look at FileMaker's found set. What I have done in the past (Word 2001) was export the records I wanted to merge to a text file and then have Word set to use that file as the merge Date Source. All the users had to do is find the right records, hit the export button, and open the Word file.

I know this can be automated in the Mac OS with Applescript. Don't know about Windows.
