Description claudiadzm 2007-01-02 11:02:15 UTC
It would be nice, if it would be possible tu use DDE-fields in a simular way as
variables. What I mean:
If you could use them in "conditional texts" it would be possible to use a sort
of  autottexts in mail merge documents, f.e.:

IF MailMergeField == [condition] THEN DDEfield

So you could store and maintain autotexts in sections of a writer-document or in
cells of a calc-document and apply in mail merge documents depending on conditions.

Hope I could explain what I mean.
