    Why the "it's just not a feature" comment? The mail merge procedure 
is exactly the same as it is in the MSWord/Excel combination to which 
you compare it. You don't need to use OOBasic, although you can if you 
wish. Just the same way that you can use VBA in Excel or MSWord to 
automate the process if you want to. <shrug> Methinks your comment may 
be a troll </shrug>
