    Unanswered: best way to merge data into a dtp platform

    I want to merge my data from my database into a DTP software platform and the distil into PDFs.

    Can already do this via Word with Mail Merge, wondered if there was a better way of doing this?

    Thanks,

    I know there is a way to automate a word document, and maybe even a mailmerge. You may want to look into that. Then you could just click a button and it export then put it in mailmerge then all you would have to do is change it over to the pdf.

    JS
    Have you ever thought about thinking on purpose?
