Editable Merge File

Postby BRobinsonS » Mon May 05, 2014 1:14 pm

I have different branches of an organization who may want to send out different customized letters to members.
Is it possible in Report Designer to allow for the idea that each branch could modify the contents of the letter to their own needs which would include fields from the DBPro database?

Ideas would be appreciated.

Yes you can use Report Designer to create a mail-merge style document. In this situation you don't use partitions, just put the text, graphics, etc. directly on the page background in Report Designer. You can insert NeoBook variables as well as database variables. Depending on how different the text is between the branches you can either customize the document with variable populated in NeoBook or have separate reports for each branch.
