I'm using mail merge in MS Word to send out a bunch of emails.  Each
email needs to contain a unique URL (from my datasource).  My word doc
is in HTML.  I can easily replace the displayed text with the mail
merge fields, but I cannot figure out how to replace the href text
with info from my datasource.  For example, I need to have a mail
merge field in <a href='http://<<MAILMERGEFIELD>>.com'>Link</a>

this type of thing. One website has helped me many times when I have
had this type of problem.
