PSTextMerge merges lists of data into text templates to create fully populated text files. The output files can be Web pages, XML files, RSS Feeds or any other varieties of text files. The input data can be obtained from a tab-delimited data file, or directly from a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. You can record and easily play back recorded scripts, making it easy to re-generate your output text files when your data changes. Tab-delimited files can be easily exported from most spreadsheets, databases, address book, and many other programs.

PSTextMerge can also perform other operations with tabular data, extracting and merging data from multiple bookmarks files, address books, and other formats.

Will only read 20 records.

What's New:
Add INCLUDE Command
Added an INCLUDE Command to Template processing. This command allows you to include text from another file into the output stream being generated by the template. The included text is not processed in any way, but is simply copied to the output file(s) being generated. This does allow output from a previous step in a script to be included in the output generated by a later step. If an include file is not found, then it will simply be skipped and processing will continue, with a log message to note the event.
Add Ability to Output Formatted HTML Table Cells
Added a new Data Source of "Excel Table", which generates only one column for each row in the table, called "Table Row". This column contains complete formatted HTML for every column in the row, including comparable text formatting, hyperlinks, and cell dimensions.
Add Ability to Detect Start and End of Lists
Added IFNEWLIST and IFENDLIST commands, that indicate the beginning and ending of a list of records, all having the same group identifier at the specified level. So whereas IFNEWGROUP indicates a new value in the group identifier field for a particular level, IFNEWLIST indicates the start of a new sequence of values. In general, IFNEWLIST and IFENDLIST can be used to insert begin list and end list tags when generating HTML.
Hyperlinks Now Available from Excel Spreadsheets
When reading an Excel spreadsheet, if an Excel cell has a hyperlink associated with it, that hyperlink can now be accessed by adding "link" to the name of the column.
Simplified Syntax for Links in Outline Format
When processing a Data Source in PSPub Outline format, hyperlinks can now be added simply by specifying a URL (beginning with the usual http: prefix) on a line by itself following the line to be hyperlinked. An outline heading may now have such a hyperlink applied, as well.
Notify User when Memory is Low
The program now generates log messages when it is low on memory.
Add Informational Messages to Log at Startup
Added some additional informational messages to the log at startup. Now displaying amount of available memory and information about the Java Virtual Machine on which the application is running.
Corrected a Bug in Play Recent Script Menu Item
Corrected a bug that prevented the length of the Play Recent Script menu item from ever showing more than four items. The list should now show up to 10 items, as previously intended.
