    Default Save letters to Individual files when being produced.

    A few days back I made an entry requesting help on this issue. I still haven't been able to create individual files for each letter produced.

    The letter production procedure works great and I would like to save each letter to a file. Each pass will create 10 to 20 letters therefore it would also create 10 to 20 individual files. The name of each file would come from a field in the table set used to produce the letters.

    Need to get my project moving forward. Some direction would be appreciated.

    Create a script to do the following:

    repeat

    1. create new Word document letter (input filename ) 'collect filename from field
    2. merge data into THIS document
    3. save THIS document
    4. return to application
    5. get next ' if

    while not end of list

    Happy Alpha'ing

    I have placed the example with code in the CODE ARCHIVE section.
