Subject: form letters in SAS
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
We're trying to create a production-level form letter. The data
originate from a SAS dataset. Is there an easy way to generate the
letter with SAS?
Maybe I'm just lazy, but presently, I write the variable data into an
Excel spreadsheet and have a Word template that conducts a mail merge
using the data from the spreadsheet...it's a fairly manual process.
I'd rather have this entire process encapsulated within SAS if
possible. We have about 80 letters per day to customize and print.
Things I've tried:
1. PROC FSLETTER....don't license that module.
2. DDE to MS Word....can't get a record's worth of data to print the
letter out, then move to the next record and print that letter out,
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
