A portion of my job is to make letters which are standard in content, except for certain fileds that are edited for each letter. I want Word to capture data from certain screens from this other program, similar to a database-type program, and paste
them into the appropriate fields in the letter document.
Maybe a macro is needed, maybe not. If it involves VB, I'm afraid I'm not experienced in programming.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for reading,

Unless there's a reason for using screens, per se, rather than just referring to the data from which the screens source their display, you may be able to get what you're after via a mailmerge or, perhaphs, OLE linking. However, you haven't given enough information
for me to be able to say whether either of those approaches might be viable. If you want to capture data from input screens in another program, the only way of doing that (if it's even possible with the application concerned) is via code.
