Hi all,

I would like to write a macro in order to work around the "print on a single file" lack of mailmerge OOo command.
What I have in mind is *automatically* collect all files generated by mailmerge an rearrange them in a unique file. This could be done or after print jobs or by providing user file destinations

I've tried to intercept mailmerge via listener but this way seems useless since I can't get access to dialog properties.
So I've tried to write a macro that before set registry configuration properties since the mailmerge process seems to get default information from keys
/org.openoffice.Office.Writer/ FormLetter/FileOutput/Filename
and then run mailmerge process through dispatcher.

Any suggestion would be very appreciated.

I think the mailmerge has a special XML adaptor filter that takes care of the filter process.
So you might wanna read through the filter development section of the Developer's Guide.
