Quilmerg is a mail-merge program, designed to merge database fields stored in an Archive file into a document created by the word processor Quill.

The program handles documents about three pages long and with up to 15 different fields. Each field is restricted to a maximum of 25 characters.

Before Quilmerg is used two separate files must be produced, one of which contains the selected records from Archive. Once the required records have been selected they are written to a file using the Export command. The second file contains the document, created using the Print command in Quill to output to a file. Merge fields are entered by surrounding the name of the field by < and >.
