Merging Date with a Word Doc

I have a database where receipts need to be printed. The receipt is in the form of a letter. I currently have the letter in a layout in Filemaker. My question is can the information for the receipt be merged with a letter in Word and if so how difficult is it?

If this is Windows only then there two ways of doing it:

- set up your FM database as an ODBC data source and connect to it from inside Word

- or have FM output the data as a text file and call a merging VBA macro (you'd need to write that one) through a FM Send Message (6) or Send Event (7) script step

- variation on #2: if you don't like to have VBA code embedded in your Word documents you can have the code in a VBscript.
