Today we will see Mail Merge feature in Word Report.

I would suggest to please go through my earlier post for creating simple List Report for better understanding as some parts I will be skipping in this post assuming you have already learned from my previous post.

Here is the Quick Link : [ Creating My First List Report in Navision 2015 ]

Lets assume ever month we require to send a Reminder Letter to our Customers for Due Payments.

Now we can design such report at customer ease.

Lets Start with creating a new Report.

Add the Data Items and desired columns as one shown below.

Add appropriate filters on Data Items, I have added [ Open = Yes, Document Type = Invoice, Remaining Amount > 0, Due Date <> ‘ ‘] you select your own as desired.

Set the Report Properties as shown in below screen.

Define Global Variables as shown in below screen.

We have Included WordMergeDataItem as Cust. Ledger Entry. This will set the table to loop for records.

Each records will be considered as New Page for the Report.

Word Mail Merge -1

In this report we are using Include Caption which will include caption for each required columns from one defined in respective table.

Add this property for each required column.

Add the code to the Data Item Trigger to fetch Customer Information for each record.

Insert New Blank Word Layout to the Report.

Word Mail Merge -3

Export the Layout Template and Save.

Open saved Layout Template in Word.

In below screen each component is shown, refer to earlier post Creating List Word Report, Link provided above for better understanding.

In this report Label is included as we have set property for each column to include caption.
