KBITmacsPro - A replacement for the Commence Word Merge Macro
Provides 23 additional merge functions.
Works with Commence 4.x, 2000 & RM versions.
Additional functions include :-
- Merge fields allowed in the template header/footer area
- Connected fields in a Word Table automatically add rows according to the number of connected Items
- Merge multiple records into one multi-page document
- Suppress Page breaks between records
- Insert Images or other documents
- Print Labels or Envelopes using MS Word's Label/Envelope tool
- Notify Commence when a merge is complete
- Suppress repeated field values
Just put the file KBitmacsPro into Word's startup folder instead of cmcmacs8.dot or cmcmerge.dot.
Current KBITmacsPro version is 19k.
An older (less functions) version 17c is available for use with Office/Word 97.
Please email info@KBit.co.uk for this file.
Versions of Commence from RM2.1a onward has caused a few problems with our KBitmacsPro traditional style macro.
KBitmacsProV19k.dot file can coexist with cmcmerge.dot but not with cmcmacs8.dot. If it exists remove the latter.
Then when KBitmacsPro is copied to Word's startup folder,
start commence and word.
In word use the GetFields BUTTON in the traditional 3 button toolbar.
Select a category (usually people) select a document filing path field (or temporarily any field in people) then press the 'Activate KBit Filer and KBitmacsPro' button.
This will initialise the registry settings missed by RM2.1 & newer versions.
In Commence you will now have available several applications for integrating word to cmc,
Microsoft Word 2000
Microsoft Word 2000 and KBit Filer.
In addition to the above registry fixes, Commence RM2.1 also forces the Letter Logging Detail Form to be displayed before sending the traditional DDE commands to Word. This confuses the word macro's into thinking that the letter logging record is the Principal Letter Merge Item and subsequent errors get generated. To avoid this simply include the following VB Script in the Letter Logging Detail Form.
MsgBox "Press the OK Button ONLY AFTER Word has completed the merge process.", vbOkOnly, "Commence Letter Logging."
