Chapter 12. Mail Merge Magic > Saving the Content from the Solution Document

Saving the Content from the Solution Document

The routine behind the Import Word File button on the Main form essentially performs the opposite function of the routine behind the Export This File button. That is, one imports text into the solution document and the other saves the text back out into a Word file. However, there is a key difference. The import routine is simply a help to users. It automates what is usually done manually by opening a file and using copy and paste features.

In contrast, the export functionality works differently—it's not the same as just doing a Save As from the Word interface. Nothing prevents the solution document from being saved or saved as. Simply saving the file is expected and encouraged, especially given that users can type into it or import text with the import routine.
