Mail Merge with Word

I was wondering if it is possible to export data from Capital table to a Word document (like mail merge I guess) in anyway. We are doing an implementation and the customer has a lot of standard documents where only Name, Address etc. need to be inputted. Rather than redesign these documents in VB we thought this may be an easier option.

The ODBC drivers that ship with Office include support for DBF. You can take data, such as the customer file (CUSTREC) and use it as the database for a mail merge.

Usually the FoxPro ODBC driver for version 2.6 is the most suitable.
