hartwig has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings
How can I use MS word mailMerge fkt via OLE but not! provide a DataSource (actually no database or file)? I'd like to create some data with perl and MailMerge them on the fly into MS Word - without (as I said) creating a temporary file?
Are there any monks around who encountered the same problem?
Have a nice day
Hartwig PS. Of course I know that I need a DataScource - but I would like to use an arry/hash ... whatever but no file or database :)

    How about ACME::Thought_Transference?

    Sorry, couldn't resist ;)
