    I posted this on the email makreting thread but no response yet in several days:

    Hi all

    After creating a doc in Word, then pasting as HTML into Outlook and selecting recipients,is it possible to have a field in the body of the email auto-populated with the FIRST NAME of every business contact selected as a recipient i.e.  "Dear <business contact first name here>"

    This level of personalization is needed for a company newsletter. Please advise

    Thank you

    You can send personalized Outlook HTML e-mail using Word e-mail merge.

    To do this, create a Marketing Campaign.  Select your recipients, then choose "Word E-mail Merge" as the Delivery method.  Browse to an existing Word document or create one as described in the posting linked below:


    Clicking the "Launch" button will take you to the Word mail merge wizard.  The last step of the wizard will prompt you to select an e-mail subject and format.  If you select HTML, Word will generate a separate Outlook HTML e-mail message for each of your recipients.

    Hi guys,

    I´m looking for a tool to create business docs into BCM. Something like this: create a general doc like visit.docx, and everytime one employee goes out to a client, it can open it, fill the form and have it created direct into the Project. How can I do it?

    I need to create fields with financial formulas to be shown on the General Page of an opportunity. For example Amt Financed, Interrest rate, Payment etc etc.

    I realize  that I can create a custom form with these fields and formulas, but how would I deploy or publish it as the General page?
