exceeds 32k in length and can support embedded
graphics that are either present in the template
letter or are merged from a FileMaker Pro
database during processing. The application also
supports the sending of multiple email file
operates by providing facilities for the
creation and maintenance of letter definitions.
A letter definition is a collection of
parameters and a template letter that together
describe how a letter is to be constructed and
to whom the letter is to be sent. The template
letter may contain any number of 'tags', each of
which point to data fields within a specific
FileMaker Pro database. When a letter definition
is processed, the template letter is merged with
selected records from the specified database.
That is, the tags in the template letter are
replaced with live data from the selected
records. For example :
text '[Title] [First_Name]
[Last-Name]' would be replaced by the
string 'Mr Joe Smith where the text 'Mr', 'Joe'
and 'Smith' is merged from the 'Title',
'First_Name' and 'Last_Name' fields of the
database record currently being
constructed letter is then addressed, optionally
using further data from the database and then
dispatched via email.
