Creating a semi-automated mailmerge?

    Running Word 2010...

    A colleague has a requirement to regularly convert the contents of csv files
    (all standard format) into a Word document. The Word document is an
    application form that is already laid out carefully with questions and boxes
    for answers, and he wants to be able to automate this process instead of
    copying/pasting, as he'll need to do this on a fairly regular basis.

    Is this possible using mailmerge? My thinking is that he can create a
    template based on the form, then run a mailmerge to grab the content of the
    csv - each field, on one line, would go into a different section), but I
    have to admit that I'm not an expert in this and would be grateful for any
    advice.

    Thanks in advance.
