I want to create a mini-Lyrics book.
I want to print the book so each 8.5 x 11 paper will have 4 sections.
Each section will contain 1 Title, 1 Artist and 1 Song Lyrics.

I would like to store the data in XML (easiest format to update).
Excel and Access are too cumbersome.
So it will look something like this..

<song>
<title>Under The Sea</title>
<artist>A-Teens</artist>
<lyrics>The seaweed is always greener,
In somebody else’s lake.
..</lyrics>
</song>

<song>
<title>..</title>
<artist>..</artist>
<lyrics>..</lyrics>
</song>

<song>
<title>..</title>
<artist>..</artist>
<lyrics>..</lyrics>
</song>


Now how would I make Word to read this in,
and force it into my template of 4 Songs per page?
Can Mail Merge do it?
I would like to avoid VBA coding if possible
as I want to make this simple and painless.

Thanks!
