fmSpark for FileMaker
SeedCode has released fmSpark, an add-on for the FileMaker Pro database suite. When combined with FileMaker databases, fmSpark lets users create various forms of correspondence based on extracted information, such as labels, letters, and "rich" HTML e-mails. Critically, users do not have to leave FileMaker, or enter into its layout mode.
The software scans databases for merge fields automatically, and generates its own menus from which people can take mailing information. Output can also be composed using customized templates. fmSpark requires FileMaker Pro 8.5 or later; licenses start at $130 for an individual and rise to $550 for workgroups.
