Read merging access 2013 table with wordperfect 10 form by Charles B @ 5/14/2015
Here is the work around . First, create a query to select a specific record in my access table(s), then turn that query into a Make Table Query which will make a table that I call MergeTable. I then create a macro in wp 10 that will perform a merge with the forms I created in Wordperfect with the data source set to ODBC MergeTable(path). I then create a button on my Access form that will run the Make Table Query and then run the merge.  The Make Table Query will overwrite the table each time its run. In order to avoid the microsoft warning message when opening-running a Wordperfect macro from the vba code Application.FollowHyperlink "wp10macroPath" , use shell function Shell "cmd /c ""wp10macroPath"", vbHide".  Unfortunately, this is a very indirect way to accomplish something that should be easier to automate.

Obviously, Microsoft Access works much better with MS Word. I ended up translating all my forms to MS Word. It was a steep learning curve, but it is working fine now. You might be able to dump your data down to a comma delimited file and then run WP through a Shell command. I just don't know how hard it would be to link the data to the form. We used Dbase III back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and it was easy to open our master form in WP and link it to Dbase and run our merges that way. In the end, it was worth the trouble of converting to MS Word and being able to just push a button and have the form merge automatically.

It may be possible, but Access is not designed to be a word processor and I don't know how difficult it would be to create all the forms necessary for a law office.  I already have all form necessary in Wordperfect.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

It would depend on how complex the Forms are but you can design Reports to be quite detailed.
If you already have them in WP your integration route does seem the best option.

Do you have the following option available

Tools | Visual Basic | Visual Basic Editor

If you do you should then be able to use VBA to open an Access Object, get your recordset and fill it in. I'm not sure how you relate it to the values in WP but I'd guess they have names you can refer to.

Is there a way to automate (code behind a button) a merge using access 2013 table and wordperfect 10 form?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I've not used WP before.

You may find wpuniverse helpful.
Looks like it has it's own scripting language and has discontinued support for VBA in favour of .NET
Could you not just create your Form in Access and print it via a Report?
