Exporting to Word Processing


You can use word processing to:

  • Create letters using Microsoft Word

This function generates a Word file from the data in a list, and links it to another Word document. Replacement variables can then be transferred to the Word document and supplied with the values from the generated Word file.

  • Create a document

This function transfers the list currently displayed to the presentation server as an RTF file. The RTF format lets you use the file as a Word document. You can define whether colors should be included in the list, and whether MS Word should be started immediately. Specify the full path for the file.


You can only use the form letter function and the immediate start of Word during creation of a document if you have Microsoft Word installed on your PC.

  1. Choose ® Word processing.

If you are in full-screen mode, choose . Alternatively, choose List ® Export ® Word processing.

The entries in your list are applied according to the options you set.
