I’ve read through the info on your website and the above component appears to be close to what I require.
Let me first describe what our needs are and if you could let me know if the product is suitable.
We have hundreds of MS Word Documents with 10 merge fields already setup, these merge fields are placeholders for data stored in SQL Server.
We have a grid which users use to select the records/information they want to merge, unlike your standard mail merge process where only 1 Template is used to merge the data (eg like a letter mailout scenario), we have many Word Template documents. The Word Document File Name is unique and specific, every data row that is to be merge will have this file name. So essentially I need a component to read the records the user has selected, find the Word file on the server and merge the data in the merge fields and perform this process for every record the user has selected, then combined all of the merged documents into 1 Word File for them to either print to hardcopy or they may wish to print to PDF.
We currently have this working via automating MS Word on the server, but the process to make it work is unreliable as it involves a lot of server configurations. We are looking for a simpler solution with less security tweaks in windows 2003 server.
Hope I have provided sufficient information above for you to advise if your product will suit my needs.
Please also advise what your hourly consulting fees are as we may require this functionality to be developed by you and if possible could you quote the above requirements.
