    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!
