      Thanks for the reply. I installed Sheepsaver and WP3.5 and will play around
      with it. It's not running all that fast and the instructions to setup the
      printer don't jive with the screens I get when I try to setup printing but
      I'll keep at it.

      Thanks again.

      Kevin

      WPMac has substantial merge ability, including macro support, but
      I don't know how it compares to, or how compatible it is, with WPWin
      12. Compatibility may be more of an issue: WPMac's merge facilities
      are extensive, as is its macro language, but WPMac and WPWin have
      different macro languages. Sorry I don't know more than that.
