    Use perl to ceate Open Office Letters??


    Would like to read from an open office spread sheet >> names and address and then place that into a open office writer template and create a letter from each name and address from spread sheet.

    Is this possible??

    I'm sure that it is.

    A few years ago I parsed an OpenOffice spreadsheet that was saved in an XML format. An XML word processing document could exist as a perl template.

    There's also this set of modules on CPAN, though I haven't used them.
