    My company wants to distribute infopath forms soon via email. They wish some basic details to be entered (such as name, email address etc) from an access database.
    I had it working in Word with a mail merge on the pure xml before i installed office 2003 sp1.
    The process i would follow was:

    1)create a form in infopath
    2)save the xml
    3)open the xml file in word
    4)mailmerge it with access database sending as an attachment

    So right now i am looking for a work around in office, a way to get rid of office 2003 sp1 (without uninstalling and reinstalling the whole lot), or a basic ascii mail merge program which can import from an access database or something that access can create (such as comma or tab sepperated files).

    Emailing the xml file is not important anymore, i can work around that. I could work with a program to just produce the individual xml files.

    Any ideas? Anyone?
