    I am not sure of what specific help you are looking for.

    If you want help on editing a Microsoft Word document from an external application, then I recommend you look for references on automating Word (and the Word Object Model) on Microsoft’s web site: Microsoft Developer Network.

    It sounds like you want the required format for a MS Word ‘mail merge’ data source.

    The following articles on the Microsoft web site may be helpful:

    HOW TO: Design and Set Up Mail Merge Data in Microsoft Word 2000
    HOWTO: Automate Microsoft Word to Perform a Mail Merge from Visual Basic .NET
    Word 2000 Mail Merge Resource Center

    In addition, I recommend you experiment with the Mail Merge feature in MS Word, to learn more about defining a data source.
