Accessing Data From Word

You can access your COBOL data from Microsoft Word 2000, 2003, or 2007. If you have a different version of Word, your instructions may be slightly different.

The procedures for using Microsoft Word 2003 or later use the Mail Merge task pane and wizard to create form letters. You can also create the letters using the Mail Merge toolbar. If you are an experienced Word user, you may favor this method over the Mail Merge task pane approach, but be aware that your steps will differ from what is depicted here.
