Mail Merge for Access Reports .. recommendations?

P: n/a
Hi,

3 years ago I needed a mail merging report to fax .. and I needed it fast.
Access reports did not look like they could be merged at first glance and I
didn't have time to research it so I just did it in Word. This has been
unreliable.

Now the people I've written it for are considering redoing it and I am
reconsidering doing it in Access.

Is there a way to do a mail merge with an Access Report? Are there any 3rd
party controls to allow you to do this?

Thanks in advance,

I haven't used it myself, but the very reliable company FMS has an
Access Fax plug-in. See http://www.fmsinc.com
