Default Create and populate multiple templates with merge tags

Hi



I have 8-9 Documents that I have to create for different cases. Each document remains largely the same with a few details changed each time. Is there a way of having an excel sheet with the changed data on and using it to populate a group of templates all at once.

i.e. I create an excel sheet with the unique data apply it to group of templates and word creates 9 unique documents.

Thanks, Jonathan

If you configure the Excel workbook so that the data the Word document are to reference are always in the same location (eg by having a separate worksheet where the reference data appear), you can create links by copying the Excel cells, then pasting the content into Word using Paste Special with the 'paste link' option. Note that several paste formats are supported. Experiment to see which format(s) best suit your needs.
